Confirmation by Liam Smith
Caring. God cares for every one of his creatures making sure he looks after them every second 365 days of the year. Pretty tiring but he does it for his love for us his creation.
Outstanding. What a God! A God who knows everybody in the world by name. And loves everyone the same no matter what their history. It’s good to know no matter what I do I can always go back to God.
Never changing. God is unlike us in that he never gets in fights with us. He always wants the best for us and he always wants to be right by our side. God wants to be close to us and it’s our job to let him into our lives.
Friendly. God is the best friend anyone could ask for. He watches after you and always has your back. I think of him as my extra set of eyes watching out for me even when I’m not looking.
Interesting. I’ve learned a lot about God from confirmation class. However I know there is still a ton to learn about God. This makes me very interested as I continue in my faith journey making me want to know more.
Reviver. God not only can raise people from the dead physically he also can revive people mentally giving them new life and bringing in light into their lives.
Mighty. God controls everything. This reassures me that I have someone like him in charge. It also tells me to trust in him because although I want to be in control it’s much better if I just let him take over and have full control.
Teacher. I have learned lots of lessons from being close to God. I have learned lessons from the gospel and from going and being involved in church activities. This has made me into the person I am today.
Incredible. I think of a hero. God is more than a hero though he is incredible. God has given sight to the blind and sound to the deaf. God can do the impossible.
One of a kind. No one is like God. He is powerful but gentle at the same time. I can’t think of anything like that. God can really do it all.
Needed. Without God nothing would be here – I wouldn’t be here, you wouldn’t be here, everyone wouldn’t be here. If there is one thing I learned from confirmation class is God is needed.
Statement of Faith by Mitchell Williams
J – Jerusalem. I chose Jerusalem because it is such an important place for Christianity. It is referenced 806 times in the Bible. I also think I am an important part in Christianity, just like everyone else.
E- Easter. I chose Easter. I think it’s pretty obvious why I chose Easter, but if you were wondering, it is the day Jesus was resurrected from the dead. It is one of my favorite holidays because it is such a happy time.
S – Sabbath. I chose Sabbath because I think it is important to set aside time for Him.
U – Unconditionally. I chose unconditionally because God loves everyone unconditionally.
S – Scripture. I used scripture because it is pretty much the center for Christianity; because it’s not only in one part of Christianity, it’s in every part.
C – Christmas. I used Christmas because it was the day Jesus was born and it is also my favorite holiday because I feel closer to family.
H- Healing. I used healing because Jesus was known for many things and healing anything was one of those things. He heals me in stressful times and also helps other people to get over those times.
R – Resurrection. I used resurrection because even after being crucified, Jesus resurrected from the dead. To me this means that I am never dead in Christ.
I -Idol. I chose idol because Jesus should be our only idol and nothing else. To me, he is my idol.
S -Sin. I chose sin because Jesus died on the cross and relieved us of all our sin. To me, this means that I am never lost in Christ.
T-Trinity. I chose trinity for the holy trinity. The trinity gives me guidance through life.
