Statement of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible is the only, inspired, infallible authoritative Word of God.
  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three people: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  4. We believe that all humanity (because of Adam’s fall) has inherited a sin nature and all human beings choose to sin.
  5. We believe that salvation is a gift of God’s grace through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross.
  6. We believe that good works are results of salvation, not requirements for salvation. Due to the sufficiency and perfection of Christ’s sacrifice, all who have received Christ as Savior are eternally secure, kept by God’s power and sealed in Christ forever.
  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ, and the evidence of that unity being shown by how we love one another.

  1. I am in a Bible study class that you taught Me Myself and Lies and I truly enjoy it I am so glad to know you. I go to Calvary Nazerine Church in Bethany OK have been going for almost 2 yrs and I’ve learned so much I didn’t know about Christians and their love for God.

  2. Thank You for this statement of faith in the LORD JESUS CHRIST and His sacrifice as a basis of your faith. I can now enjoy your teachings knowing you are a true believer. So many on the INTERNET are not of the same faith as I.

  3. I am searching for a ladies study to offer to the women of a Southern Baptist church. I did not see your Church affiliation. I am also curious of your views on baptism(essential or not). Our family of believers are conservative and specific in what the scriptures teach, therefore I desire to only offer solid scriptural studies for the ladies in my church family.
    Thank you.

    • Thank you for contacting Jennifer Rothschild Ministries. Jennifer is a member of Second Baptist Church in Springfield, MO along with her family.

  4. A Christian sister shared with me your Four C’s of scripture reading to stay on track, and I met you. As most people do, I have a “thorn” in the flesh for which I have prayed for healing so many times that I have quit praying for healing, and now just pray for understanding and grace. Thank you for sharing yourself and your story of God’s grace and Jesus’ salvation so eloquently. There are many Christians who are in need of encouragement. I have found encouragement from your devotionals that God has enlightened you with. Thank you for sharing with us.

    • Hey Bob—bless you, brother! Here’s my understanding of what the Bible says about women:

      – Women bear the image of God (Genesis 1:27; 5:1,2)
      – Women are equal heirs in Christ (1 Peter 3:7)
      – Women are not marginalized through divine order, they are still equal with men (Galatians 3:28)
      – Women are spiritually equal with men (1 Corinthians 11, 12)
      – Women are equally respected as parents (Exodus 20:12)
      – Women have a distinct role in marriage and are cherished and venerated as wife (Genesis2:20-24)
      – Married women expect their husbands to be head of their homes (Ephesians 5:23; Proverbs 19:14; Ecclesiastes 9:9)
      – Women’s true beauty and dignity are affirmed in their modesty (1 Timothy 2: 9, 10)
      – Women were prominent in the early church (Acts 12:12)
      – Women were Jesus’ disciples (Luke 8:1-3; 10:38-42)
      – Jesus’ first explicit announcement of His identity was to a woman (John 4:25, 26)
      – Jesus actively restored women’s honor (John 8:4-11)
      – Women ministered along with Paul (Philippians 4:3)
      – Women’s contributions to the ministry were commended by Paul (Romans 16:1-6; 2 Timothy 1:5)

      As far as if women should be pastors or elders … I will leave that up to the denominations to figure out! All I know is that God calls women, just as He calls men, to certain tasks for certain times for His glory. My prayer is that all of us would revere Scripture, walk humbly, hear His Voice, and follow. Amen!
