Who We Are

Statement of Faith

The Biblical God created “the heavens, earth, seas and all that in them is” during a “literal six-day time span” a few thousand years ago.

The original Creation was “very good” until Adam’s ORIGINAL SIN let death enter the world. This ORIGINAL SIN separated mankind from God and required a blood sacrifice (eventually Jesus) so man could be redeemed with God.

Due to man’s sinfulness, God destroyed His Creation via a global flood about 4,400 years ago, sparing Noah and his immediate family. Then, due to mankind’s continuing sin, God sent His only begotten Son to suffer and die on a cross – the perfect, sinless, blood sacrifice to cover the sinfulness of all mankind.

Anyone who believes in the Biblical Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection and ascension to heaven and calls on Him as their Lord and Savior will be forgiven their sins and will spend eternity with Jesus Christ in heaven. Salvation can not be earned but is provided by the grace of God.

Jesus will return to reclaim His creation at the time of His final judgment, sparing only those who have called on Him as their Lord.

The Bible, both Old and New Testaments as originally given, are the inspired, divine Word of God and are free from error in all matters, including moral, ethical, theological, scientific and historical. God is eternal, omnipotent and triune in character as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Satan is a deceiver and accuser who will spend eternity in hell where there will be “wailing and gnashing of teeth” for Satan and all those who choose to reject redemption through Jesus.

Eye-Opening Messages That Change Lives

I refer to the Biblical foundations, which are laid down in Genesis 1 and 3, as the COSt. This stands for God’s perfect (C)reation that was corrupted by Adam’s (O)riginal Sin which (S)eparated mankind from God (while allowing death to enter the world) requiring that we be Τ (the Cross of Christ) reunited with our loving Creator who is also our redeeming Savior, Lord Jesus the Christ.

The Secular agenda is simple: Destroy people’s faith in the authority of God’s Word, and in biblical Christianity, by undermining their faith in the Bible’s foundations. Their primary weapon has been to promote teachings which place death prior to mankind. They know if they can get a person to believe that Genesis is a myth or allegory, those people will not understand why it matters whether they accept Jesus for the Creator and Judge He claims to be. Then those people might accept non-biblical versions of Jesus or simply reject Him as one of a thousand false deities.

See our Messages,  Videos of live messages or read The COSt to build faith in the foundations of the Gospel message.

Have Russ Share & Learn Why Origins Matter

The seeker wonders, “How can there be a loving Creator when we live in a world full of death and suffering?” The scoffer sneers, “The zjeCnaVwXE2bX5xq70zefqBg0AGkDH_DmLrt2seo-8cdeath all around us proves there is no loving God!” The biblical answers, as well as the foundation for the Gospel message, are provided in the early chapters of the book of Genesis.

In Genesis 1:31 we learn that our righteous Creator deemed His finished creation to be very good. Since death is an enemy to God’s creation (1 Cor 15:26) we know death was not a part of God’s very good creation. So why is the world filled with death, evil and suffering today? The answer is provided in Genesis 3 where we are told of Adam’s original sin and two key results of the Fall of Man.

g72Uc-FoyJocHABi2KoQAo2F3tVTVdYH7JQrASuNWssFirst, Adam’s sin separated us from our loving Creator. This required that we be redeemed with God. In fact, the first promise of our redeeming Savior is found in Genesis 3:15 where we’re told the seed of the woman will bruise the head of the serpent. Since the seed comes from the man, God is telling us that our redeeming Savior would be born of a virgin. Amazing!

Second, Adam’s first sin corrupted God’s creation, allowing death and suffering to enter. This is the biblical answer to why the world is full of death and suffering today.

As scoffers understand, recently invented (1800-1950) old earth beliefs place death before Adam, eliminating that an original sin corrupted a perfect world. Frank Zindler, the editor of American Atheist, correctly noted in 1996 that if there never was an original sin, there is no need of salvation. Why is that so?

Because, again, the biblical accounts hold that it was Adam’s original sin that brought death into a perfect creation, separating us from God while requiring our redemption with Him through Jesus. If there was never an original sin separating mankind from God there is no need of redemption with Him.

Death-before-Adam beliefs also undermine people’s perception of the authority of God’s Word and the biblical response to why there is death in God’s creation. Thus, from a Christian perspective, death cannot precede Adam. Nor did it!

In Genesis 6 we learn man’s sin was great in the earth, so the Lord judged mankind with a flood that covered all the high hills under heaven (Gen 7:19). This was a lynch-pin event! Death-before-Adam (old-earth) beliefs are based on earth’s rock layers (layers laid down by water) having formed over long ages of time. God’s worldwide deluge explains the strata’s rapid formation, eroding death-before-Adam beliefs! See our DVD “It’s About Time” or Read Russ’ book, The COS†.

DSCN0795My advice is that we put our faith in the Word of God who became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1), our Creator and redeeming Savior, Lord Jesus the Christ.
