What Is My Inheritance in Christ

WHAT IS MY INHERITANCE IN CHRIST?

My Personal Statement of Faith on which I Stand

Kathy Beard

It has been rightly said that the only weapon the enemy has is the weapon of the lie. His battle is only effectual as long as he can repeat the lie again and again until it sounds like the truth. Our weapon against the lie is the Truth of the Word of God. The Bible tells us to “Stand Therefore” armed with all of the Spiritual armor of Jesus Christ. The following is simply a declaration of the Truth. State it aloud and stand therefore.
