Becoming Christians Fundamental Beliefs

In this post, let me share with you my fundamental beliefs as a follower of the Living and Supreme God.

For those who want to know my fundamental beliefs, I have prepared this page for you.

I know that sometimes my website content is not something you don’t hear every day from various preachers.

In fact, some of my articles and even videos run contrary to popular beliefs.

So, if you want to learn more, please continue reading.

A little bit of history

I’m not sure what religion we do have when I was born.

From what I know, my Father is a Catholic while my mother is a protestant.

When I was growing up, around my early elementary years, I could remember that we stopped eating pork and other meat considered unclean by the Bible.

That’s when I learned that we joined the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA).

After a few years, my parents discovered the Festivals of God.

Since the SDA doesn’t keep them, we decided to come out from the group and that’s when we joined the Church of God.

Today, I consider myself to be part of the Church of God.

It doesn’t fall into any major denominations.

We trace our beliefs to the teaching of the original Apostles and early first-century Church.

I believe among the beliefs that have set us apart from other Christian groups are the Sabbath, keeping the Feasts of God, not keeping popular “Christian” holidays such as Christmas and Valentines, and Food laws.

Fundamental beliefs of Becoming Christians

As the owner of Becoming Christians, let me share with you my fundamental beliefs.

God the Father

  • I believe that God the Father, who is known as the Most High God, is the Supreme Ruler of the Entire Universe.

Growing in grace and knowledge

These are just some of the fundamental doctrines that I believe in.

I strongly believe that learning is a life-long process.

One should be humble enough to admit wrong when presented with the truth.

Thus, I’m always open to discussion and open to learning more about the Word of our Living and the Most High God.

But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.
