About Me

Dennis Muse

Follower of Jesus Christ

Why That Matters

I start with this because this is who I am, everything about me begins here, it molds and shapes everything about me, the what and why I do it, my entire outlook on life.

For me, About Me,  Who I am, starts with Jesus.

The words of Jesus, "Follow Me" are First a call to Do something, Second, to Be something.

In response to His call, I have submitted to the Lordship of Jesus Christ, by accepting Him as Lord and Savior and putting my faith in Him, and Him alone. In His atoning death on The Cross as payment in full for all my sins and in His resurrection from the dead as my hope of eternal life with Him. I am filled with the Holy Spirit, which is Christ in me, and therefore I am empowered by the Holy Sprint to follow Jesus. I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” And I now imitate His life by following Him, by keeping His words/commandments, especially “ Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature, Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations”.

My Beliefs

"The Essentials"

The Bible

I believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and authoritative Word of God. I believe the Bible is the final authority in every area it addresses for every individual Christian, as well as for the church collectively. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:21, John 10:35)

God

I believe there is one God who eternally exists as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I believe that all things were created by Him and for Him. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 45:21-22, Matthew 28:19, Colossians 1:16)

Jesus Christ

Who is fully God and fully man – was sent to save us from our bondage to sin. I believe that Christ was born of a virgin, died for my sins, physically rose from the dead, and will one day return to judge the world and deliver His people. Faith in Christ is the only means by which mankind can escape eternal damnation and judgment. (Mark 14:61–62; John 5:18, 20; 8:58; 10:30–33)

The Trinity

The Trinity I believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all and governs all. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 45:21-22, Matthew 28:19, Colossians 1:16)

The Resurrection

I believe that all men everywhere are lost and face the judgment of God, that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation, and that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, I believe that God will reward the righteous with eternal life with Him, and that He will banish the unrighteous to everlasting punishment in hell. (Luke 24:46-47; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:23; 2 Corinthians 5:10-11; Ephesians 1:7 and 2:8-9; Titus 3:4-7.)

The Second Coming of Jesus

That just as Christ came to Earth once to bear the sins of the world, so, too, He will return again to gather the elect and to usher in the resurrection of all things (1 Thessalonians 4:13–18; Hebrews 9:27–28). On that day, the just will be resurrected to eternal life and the unjust to eternal conscious torment and separation from the love and grace of God (John 5:28–29). Paradise lost will become paradise restored, and the problem of sin and Satan will be fully and finally resolved (Revelation 20–22).
