Here in Christian Mommies we believe:

The Holy Scriptures are the True Word of God, and are important in all of life. We believe that the Bible is correct, and that if it says something is wrong then it is wrong. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, Hebrews 4:12, Psalm 19:7, Galatians 1:8, and Romans 15:4)

Because we believe the Holy Scriptures, we believe in the Trinity. That there is only one God eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1: 26-27, Deuteronomy 6:4-5, Matthew 28:19-20, John 14:7, and Galatians 4:4-6)

We believe that all have sinned and are in need of a Savior. (Romans 3:23, Romans 5:11-13, Hebrews 9:22, and 1 John 1:8-10)

We believe that we are saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. (Acts 4:12, Ephesians 2:8, Romans 3:24, Romans 6:23, and 1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

We believe that as Christians God continues to work in us. (Philippians 1:6 and Hebrews 12)

We believe that we are to encourage one another, and treat each other respectfully. Not gossiping or arguing, but controlling our tongues. (Ephesians 4:29, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Proverbs 20:19, 1 Timothy 6:20, 2 Corinthians 12:20, James 1:26, and James 3:1-12)

We do believe that there are some issues that we are allowed to disagree on. On these issues we are to refer to Romans 12. However, there are many issues that we believe that we are not allowed to disagree on. The Bible makes certain things clear, and we are not allowed to compromise on those things.

We believe that we are to uphold the moral law of God. (Exodus 20:3-17 and Acts 15:28-29)

We do not believe that it is okay to distort Scripture to please human motives. (2 Peter 3:16)

We do not believe that it is okay to use our Salvation as a sin license. (Jude 4)

We do not believe that immoral and/or impure people are saved. (Ephesians 5:3-5)

We believe that there is important balance of truth and grace. (John 1:17) Truth hates sin, grace loves sinners…
Truth without grace crushes people – judgmental legalism
Grace without truth deceives people – deceitful tolerance

Thrilled you did a doctrinal statement, after I joined I thought oh no did I just join a "Christian" group that is religious (mans view of God) rather that Biblical (Gods view of all). God is good, all the time!

Hello everyone,
I'm Erica I have 4 children 20, 13, 6 and 7 months. I have some questions. I'm technically divorced but we're living together once again but I am finding myself questioning myself as to whether this is sinful or does the Lord still consider us married. I've never stopped loving my husband, and I didn't want to be divorced but I didn't want to hold on to someone who didn't want to be held on to so I signed the papers. We are talking about getting remarried so is it sinful or not.

Wow i really love this statement of believe . Its great to read and it makes a lot clear to me . Me and my fiance have had a hard time in the last year not only work-wise but also with friends from church . People that dont agree with a christian couple living together if they are not married . I dont blame or disagree in that , but i think they are leaving a huge part out ... what about the love ???? Is it not love that brings you together and in love that you get married ??? Love is what binds us ! Why is a piece of paper and 2 rings that anybody could buy more important than the Love that can not be bought ??? Love is given to us to share so how can it be disreguarded like that ? I would be very happy to hear your views about this !!!!God bless you all

i joined your group but i am christian and do not believe in the trinity i believe that heavenly father Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost are three separate entities that make up the god head and ii do believe that Christ died for us and that on the 3rd day he was risen i do believe that we still have to show our faith in works not in word alone. i believe in everything else you believe except the trinity if that is a problem please remove me from your group

Praise God for all of you. Reading the verses above are just so beautiful and heartwarming. After reading some of your posts about teenage daughters I just had to share with you all. Recently my niece and daughter were going through a very hormonal phase and I am so thankful I found this time of the month service called Madame Ladybug. One of my friends niece was an intern at the company and told her how the CEO and staff are born again Christians and to pray for their company. There boxes are just amazing and full of so many goodies. My daughter and niece look forward to their lady boxes and are very comfortable with their periods now.

Hi Lianabel,

I have a 7 years old son, and I used picture books about God to introduce him to Jesus.. He likes Bible stories books, such as David and Goliath, Noah and the Flood, and much more. I also take him to church every Wednesday and Sunday and every time church door is open. He learn a lot from his Sunday school also.

Hi Lianabel,
Welcome to Christian Mommies.
When my girls were little I used to have picture book bibles & also I would use Veggie Tale movies. These were great ways to start teaching them at their level about God.
Blessings,
Pastor Victoria MacPherson.

I absolutely LOVE this community!!! Im a mother of a beautiful 2mth old:) I know for a fact that without GOD.. Nothing is possible. I try to testify to young people more than anything because I know the temptations of the world , I know how it is but I also know that nothing in the WORLD can compare to having a genuine relationship with God. Iam only 20yrs old and Iam truly truly blessed to know the goodness of God and how important it is to know him. With God, everything just falls into place and you start to realize your purpose on this earth :)

"We do not believe that immoral and/or impure people are saved. (Ephesians 5:3-5)"
-they can be saved, they could have gotten saved earlier in life and fallen away. Only God knows their heart. They just need to repent of their sin and rededicate their life to God. These verses are just a few. I just want to make sure we are on the same page.
Hebrews Chapter 6
4 For [it is] impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put [him] to an open shame.

John 5:24 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
John 10:28 - And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand.


It is such a blessing to come across a group of people that have the same beliefs that I do. I pray that we are of an equal yoke, so that neither of us are in sin. God bless!

I'm intrigued by the responses here. They are rather monotonic. I've been through this- twice. Prayer won't do it. Sorry, but it's true. Sometimes, they remain who they have become regardless of our prayer. And then who are we to blame? Ourselves for being insufficient mothers? Evil society? Horrible husbands? Who? What? And more importantly what do we DO about it? In my case, he remained Atheist. But he is kind, moral, loving; in some ways more than my very devout daughter. Thus...I figure the situation is more complex than God is letting on here! We cannot be so simplistic in our assessment of this kind of situation.

Hi Amanda,
Have you considered getting another translation? I'm not sure which you use, but something like an NIV combined with a paraphrase such as the NLT or Message version can be helpful to understanding.
Try reading early in the day, when little one is down for a nap & try in stints of 15 minutes to start with a couple of times a day.
Trusting & believing is a personally choice, so I don't really know what to tell you to help you do that other than ask for the Holy Spirit to assist you.
Pray before you read & after you read asking the Holy Spirit to help you understand & continue His ministry even after you have finished.

I trust this helps, I will keep you in prayer.
Blessings, Pastor Victoria MacPherson.

I agree with all of this. As a young working mother, it is hard to always remember these values. It is hard for me ti be patient with my 1 yr old and understand why he does some things. I get discouraged easily and give up. I have tried staying in the word a few times but I always have an excuse not to continue reading (too tired, don't understand it, etc...) what are some good ways to stay in the Word and trust that God is speaking to you?

I have been raised in church all of my life! I have heard many sermons preached about sin... and against sinners. I have to say, this is the first time in my 29 years that I've ever seen (or read) something that is SO true. The statement about the balance of truth and grace! You can't have one without the other! Love this!!! Thank you!!!

[deleted account]

I love this! It is really great and enpowering when busy moms take time out of their schedule to speak the word of the Lord Jesus Christ! Thank you ma'am you are a blessing! :)

Wendy, If I were to turn you away because you were gay is a rediculous thing. The Bible calls it an abomination, but he calls a liar the same thing. If I were to say, " I am a Christian liar, I hope I can join your group," people would laugh and treat it like nothing, but slap "lesbian" on it and it's a whole other story.
God sees sin as sin. No sin is greater than another. He even consideres hate as murder. abomination is abomination and Revelations says that we all have our place in the pit. Repentance is for everyone and it is not selective. the Word says "any man who says he is without sin is a liar." I love you for your openness and transparancy. I am here for you and will help you anyway I can through your journey.

I agree Shari, You can be passionate about this all you want, but if you dont have any compassion you wont touch any souls. Jesus came for the sinner, the whole are not in need of a physician. He fed the masses before he preached to him. I do not compromose what I believe, I do not apologize for my beliefs. Jesus said if we are ashamed of Him he will be ashamed of us.... But I wont chase away a soul w/ fire and brimstone. None of us were born saved and only one was born perfect, Jesus Christ. Everyone used to be something.

Wendy, I am sorry that I am just now seeing your post! Please forgive me in taking so long to get back to you. I agree 100% with what Sandy wrote. I would need to dialog with you further before I could say you were immoral or impure. This is a VERY touchy subject, but also an important one. If you would like to dialog further I would love to do so in a private message.

Wendy,
I believe strictly by the Bible. I do what I am supposed to do. I do not dislike you because you are a lesbian, but I also respect the Bible and believe that you are living in sin because of your lifestyle. I have had many friends who were gay over the years, and I have told them all the same thing when asked. I believe that the lifestyle is a sin, but I would be wrong if I aimed toward you the "hate" of the sin. It is not you that I dislike or do not want to support in your walk, but I do not like or agree with your lifestyle. I don't want you to take the message at me being rude, mean, or ugly about it. I am just simply stating my beliefs. But, your lifestyle or sin, makes you no less my sister in Christ. If that makes sense. You love people through things, you don't alienate them and make them feel like they are not wanted and welcome, in my opinion, that is a large problem with some Christians. They are not able to accept a person, without alienating them due their sin no matter what that sin may be. I think you are loved and can be encouraged in your spiritual walk, not necessarily in your lifestyle though. If you see what I am saying. I can befriend anyone without supporting a sin, a lifestyle, or a bad habit. Some Christians have a problem with this, but you do that or risk turning people away from God, and God would not want us alienating people from His family.

As a Christian Lesbian mom, I am wondering if I fall under your immoral and/or impure people or if I have a place here? Not starting a flame war, just wanting to know where I stand and I can find support through my spiritual journey here.

Heather,
It is always great to read a post of faith when someone believes in the Bible as saying what means, and meaning what it says. I have written for a Christian ministry website for several years. I have also been a member of several Christian networks and posting boards, and have been literally, verbally attacked by other Christians who just call me a "fundamentalist". Through the Bible, God gives us daily direction for our lives, and really guides us through in a simple way, telling us right from wrong, and attempts to make things very simple for us in order for us to be able to follow His word and His direction. Thank you for your post. God bless you and have a great Thanksgiving.

Heather, I just came across this community! And, YES! I believe those things, too, with all my heart! How refreshing to find some moms who love Jesus and want to live according to the Bible! I would love to find some support, encouragement and friendship with other Christian moms. I hope that is what is going on here. If so, I want to join your community!

Thank you for sharing this it is very helpful. Sometimes we have a way of making things to complicated and the verses and guidance you provided just reminds me that it is not that complicated if we just believe.
