There are a lot of websites floating around in this land we call cyberspace. Which makes it critically important that we carefully evaluate what we read, considering whether it reflects the truth.

There is no topic for which this is more critical than that of faith.

Sadly, “Christian” doesn’t mean the same thing to multitudes of people today that it does to me. Perhaps you’ll notice in my writings that I often use the word Christ-follower instead. I believe it’s a name that distinguishes those who are truly following in the footsteps of our Savior – those who are growing in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18).

Click here for a summary of what I believe. It is the statement of faith of an Independent Baptist church. I have examined it carefully and agree fully with its contents.

If you have a question about these beliefs, or any other aspect of A Divine Encounter, I welcome your feedback. Please leave a comment below or email me at jenniferclarkewriter@gmail.com.

      Hi, Faith! I’m so glad you stopped by, and I first want to apologize for my extremely delayed response. I took a break this summer from many aspects of blogging because of some intense family circumstances, but I’m so thankful to be easing my way back into it – I’ve missed it! I don’t know how far along you are with your blog, but I can highly recommend a couple of books that have helped me greatly. (These are affiliate links. If you purchase through the links, you pay the same price but I will earn a tiny commission.) Platform by Michael Hyatt and How to Blog for Profit Without Selling Your Soul by Ruth Soukup both provide very helpful nuts-and-bolts information about blogging, whether you’re blogging for ministry, for business, or for pleasure. I also recommend joining the Facebook group called “Inspired Bloggers Network.” It’s a very large and helpful crowd of bloggers of all ability levels, and a great place for getting information and asking questions.

      I thank you sincerely for stopping by, and I hope you’ll stay in touch! 🙂

    Hi Jennifer,

    I am a fellow Christ-follower and a new subscriber. 🙂 I am very happy I came across your blog this evening, and have enjoyed visiting many of your pages.

    I wanted to let you know the link you have to Shenandoah Baptist Church’s Statement of Faith page has changed since your posting and -returns a ‘404 – Page Not Found’ error on their site. The new link is located at: http://sbcfamily.org/statement-of-faith/

    Thank you for sharing your heart for Jesus with the world through your blog! May God continue to bless you and your ministry.

    In Him,
