Stephanie is 13 years old. Her family goes to a Charismatic Bible Church. I asked her some questions about Christian doctrine. This church emphasizes parental responsibility for Christian education, so her parents get a lot of credit for her answers.
How to serve God and the Church. How to live for Jesus. How to pray. How to grow in relationship with God and others.
I think the Trinity means that God has three parts, but I'm not sure. It hasn't come up in class.
Believe that God died for you. Obey what God tells you. Admit that you are a sinner, and that you need God. Hope in God - trust Him for your future.
Faith means to put your hope and trust in God, believe what He says, and obey what you tells you.
Salvation is a commitment of faith - when you turn you life over to God.
Works are our efforts to earn our way to Heaven. But God says, "All our righteousness is as filthy rags." We cannot please God on our own.
Works done by His help and through His Grace are worthy in His eyes.
