For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
- John 3:16
What We Believe Here At The Biblical Nutritionist
What we believe matters!
Beliefs shape our actions.
My desire is for you to know and understand who God is and why you matter to Him!
All Scriptures is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction,
for training in righteousness; that the man of God may be adequate, equipped, for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
We (my team here are The Biblical Nutritionist) believe that the Bible, consisting of sixty-six books, is the inspired Word of God; that every part is fully and equally inspired, and that every single word of Scripture was produced under the control of the Holy Spirit (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21).
We also accept the Scriptures in their entirety as being inerrant (in the original writings) and infallible.
the triune godhead
We believe, although there is only one true God, that God consists of three distinct persons. That the Father is God, that the Son (Jesus, the Christ-Messiah) is God and that the Holy Spirit is God (Dt. 6:4; Jn. 1:1; 14; 6:27; Acts 5:3-4).
God is the source and sustainer of life. He, according to the counsel of His own will, decreed whatsoever comes to pass, including both His permissive will and His causal will (Isa. 14:24; 26-27; Eph. 1).
He is the living God, the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things. He is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, and is revealed to us as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that man was created directly by, and in the image of, God to have intimate fellowship with God (Gen. 1:26-27; 2:7). We believe that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life, by direct act. (Genesis 1:1; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17)
We believe that all of humanity fell away from God when Adam first sinned and that the fall resulted in both physical and spiritual death for man. In this fallen condition, man was left totally depraved and unable to remedy his own situation (Gen 3:6-13; Rom. 5:12-21; 1 Cor. 15:21-22; Eph. 2).
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ to be absolute Deity, the eternal Son of God, who became man without ceasing to be God. In the incarnation, He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary (Isa. 9:6-7; Mt. 1:18-25; Jn. 3:16; Heb. 18). We believe that Jesus Christ was both fully God and fully man at the same time (Phil. 2:5-8). We believe that He was totally holy by virtue of His miraculous birth and sinless life (2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 4:15).
We believe that Jesus Christ voluntarily laid down His life, the just dying for the unjust, making it possible for man to be saved (Jn. 10:17; Heb. 9:14, 28; 1 Pet. 3:18). We believe that He rose bodily from the dead on the third day after death, and that He ascended into heaven to the right hand of the Father (Jn. 2:19-22; Acts 1:9-11; Heb. 1:3).
We believe that presently He is our Intercessor and Advocate, the only true mediator between God and man (1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 4:14, 7:25; 1 Jn. 2:1).
We believe that Israel is God’s chosen national people (Gen. 28:13). In God’s sovereign will, Israel serves as a channel of His blessing to the entire world (Gen. 12:3) for His glory (Isa. 43:7), and His witness to the nations (Isa. 43:10). God’s election of Israel for this unique relationship is irrevocable (Rom. 11:28-29).
We believe Israel is distinct from the Church and central to God’s plan – past, present, and future. The unfulfilled prophecies given to Israel in the Old Testament will find their literal fulfillment in Israel at a future time (Ps. 105:6-10).
the great commission
Until the return of Christ, it is the Christian’s duty and privilege to seek the fulfillment of Christ’s Great Commission and to minister in His name to a needy world.
We are to be instruments of Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit ministers’ redemption and reconciliation in the world, and Stewards of the Gospel. (Matthew 25:31-46; 28:18-20)
atonement for sin
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe on Him are redeemed by His shed blood. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord Jesus Christ and in His ascension into heaven. He is our High Priest and Advocate. (John 1:1-3, 14; 3:1-7; Hebrews 10:4-14; 1 John 2:2)
We believe that salvation is the act of God whereby man is brought into a proper relationship with God. It is that act where spiritually dead man is made spiritually alive (Ps. 3:8; Jon. 2:9; Eph. 2:1–2). We believe that this is accomplished by the grace of God through man’s faith in the death (shed blood), burial, and bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 15:1–4; Eph. 2:8–10).
We believe that salvation involves three things for the believer: deliverance from the penalty of sin (confession of sins) at the moment of regeneration; victory over the power of sin during the Christian life; and deliverance from the presence of sin at glorification. We believe that salvation (accepting Christ as our savior and giving our life over to Him) positionally sanctifies the believer, but that the believer needs to experience, in his daily life, progressive sanctification (Rom. 6:14; 2 Cor. 5:21; Phil. 3:20–21).
We believe that salvation is the gift of God’s grace. It cannot be gained or made more secure by meritorious works. All who so trust the Savior are forgiven of their sins and born into the family of God by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit. (John 1:12; Acts 16:30-33; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-9)
There are other theological backgrounds that have some aspects in common with the principles we teach from, but I get what I believe straight from Scripture. Any similarities are coincidental and are not to be taken as an endorsement of any specific belief system other than faith in God and His Word.
We need to associate with like minded friends to share the Truth of God's Word.
