Rev. CHARLES W. ENGLAND: THE BIBLE’S GREAT ILLUSION
Personal Statement: I am Charles W. England, born February 28, 1941. I married Judy M. NeSmith on October 11, 1967. We have two children: Judith Lynn and Jonathan William.
Statement of Faith: I feel we should seek God’s wisdom first as directed by 1 Kings 3:3-15, also Matthew 6:33. One of the great miracles of life was when God took a person like me and opened my mind to his marvelous word.
I believe in the inerrancy of the word of God based on II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 2:21. There is only one God in three persons, Matthew 3:16, 28:19. Salvation can only be obtained through Jesus (John 14:6) the Son of God (John 3:16). Salvation comes through the conviction of the Holy Spirit (John 16:7-11) and simple belief without works (Ephesians 2:9). I am convinced that Christ was born of a virgin (Matthew 1:18). He lived a sinless life (II Corinthians 5:21) and died on the cross for our sins (John 1:29). He was resurrected from the dead (Romans 6:4) to sit at the right hand of the Father. Through Christ’s life, death, and resurrection we not only have inheritance while on earth (John 10:10), but eternity as well (John 3:15).
