Statement of Faith

I believe in God, the Father, maker of Heaven and Earth
And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord
Who was concieved by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried, he descended into Hell.
On the third day, he arose again from the dead and was seated at the right hand of the Father, from where he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit.  I believe in a holy, universal church, the communion of saints, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.
The Apostles Creed
Author Religious Profile
Bert Amsing is a Reformed Keswickean in the Charismatic tradition.  He is Pietist in his worship, neo-Puritan in his morality and contemplative-charismatic in his overall relational spirituality.
He holds a Christian worldview, a broadly evangelical theology on key biblical and theological issues but with a reformed approach and hermeneutic of Scripture (re: inerrancy and exegesis) balanced by a broadly Charismatic (and renewal based) view of spirituality and sanctification.
Within evangelical circles he tries to be inclusive in relation to theology and doctrine by recognizing and respecting the basic compatibility and emphasis of multiple approaches (the most polarizing of which is the Arminian-Reformed debate).
Outside of evangelical circles, he is firmly exclusive with respect to salvation and theology and maintains the centrality, necessity and value of the cross, the uniqueness of Jesus Christ and the authority and inerrancy of the Word of God.
In essentials, unity.  In non-essentials, grace.  In all things, charity.
