Statement of Christian Faith and Beliefs
Be aware How to Start a Christian Blog is a Christian Blog and written by me, Christi. As a Christian, I believe that Jesus was the Son of God, born of Mary, a virgin, and gave His life as a sacrifice for the sin of the world. My sin, your sin. All sin. I believe that God raised Him from the grave on the third day and He now sits at the right hand of the Father and intercedes for us all. I also believe He will come back to accept believers to live with Him in Heaven for eternity.
I realize that my experiences are just that. My experiences. They are not yours. I do not wish to press my beliefs onto you or change your mind about your own belief system. That is up to your own journey to shape you. I do believe that we can all learn from one another in various ways, and our experiences are meant to be shared, in the hopes that we can offer encouragement to others. That is my goal.
Be aware that I want to cultivate an atmosphere of encouragement in this little space of the internet. I do control the comment section. If what you have to say is not encouraging or kind, it will likely not get posted. If you disagree with me, that is fine. You get to do that. You don’t have to come to visit HowtoStartaChristianBlog.com or read anything that is written here. There is no need to provide negative feedback to me or anyone else who may post a comment on any of my pages. This is a big world with lots of different backgrounds and beliefs, and while I do not expect you to agree with everything I write, I do expect that we can all respect differences in opinion and beliefs.
Just be kind and encouraging. You can read more about me on the About Page.
