General Information

Faith for the Heart is a quarterly Christian digital publication by Christians for Christians.

Christians face unique challenges in the life we’ve chosen to live. In becoming born again we agree to live our lives according to the Gospel of Jesus, our Messiah. In living our lives by His Gospel we’re still faced with the same conditions and circumstances as everyone who hasn’t been born again. This can be frustrating and confusing, as these conditions and circumstances challenge our commitment to walk with Jesus.

Our mission is to encourage our brothers and sisters to live in the Word and teaching of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, through discussions about the challenges we face to our faith, family and community. By sharing the Word and our insights with each other we continue our spiritual growth as Christians and advance the Word and teachings of our Lord. With His love in our hearts we can help other through the challenges in their daily lives. Our articles are thought-provoking, and have a basis in scripture.

Faith for the Heart also provides unbelievers to share our experiences, circumstances and perspective. Through this openness we can better understand one another.

Testimony is important to every Christian. It’s our story about how we came to Christ. Share your testimony with us. You can see the comments others leave regarding your testimony.Our Shepard’s Corner is the place where you’ll find our guest Pastors and Ministers. They can write articles or sermons and upload podcasts to share with us.

Interviews: Some interviews are of current artists, up and coming movies, companies, etc. It varies per issue, but is always exciting!

Reviews: Entertainment review is based on Christian artists, film and movies. These are family friendly recommendations with a rating attached. Book Reviews are based on books by Christian authors. We are looking to promote reading that the family can enjoy with honest ratings on the books content. If there is mention of things that are against the bible ie gambling, gangs, sorcery, etc. It will be made mention of. Electronics and software will also be reviewed. We will either post a review for you to comment and rate or you can submit one to us. As with all submissions there is no guarantee we will publish it.

Statement of Faith

Faith for the Heart is a Cristian business. As such, it performs it’s day to day operations in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ, our Savior.

GOD

The God of the Bible has always been, 
He will always be. He is eternal, uncreated, all-powerful, all-knowing, all-present and completely sovereign over all things. He is Father, Son and Holy Spirit, the triune God, existing in perfect relationship, fellowship and community with Himself. 

All things that exist were made by Him, those things that are seen and unseen. “God created humanity not from a lack or need but from a desire to bring Himself glory. This fact defines humanity’s ultimate reason for being: bringing more and more glory to God.

RESCUE

When a rescue is required, a tragic event has most likely occurred. There is no more tragic event in human history than what is recorded in Genesis 3. God’s idyllic creation is thrown into chaos and man’s intimate relationship with God is severed.

PLAN

Only God could rescue man. Since that moment in the garden, man has attempted to rescue himself. He has created other gods (idols) to worship. In modern times these idols are not statues on a mantel, but they are idols of relationships, career, success, power, wealth, leisure, etc. The point is this: man is trying to rescue himself. He is trying to find salvation within himself (by being a really good person) or by worshiping something in creation, as Romans 1.25 indicates. Man cannot rescue himself.

THE SCRIPTURES

We believe the Scriptures are the divinely inspired Word of God and our infallible rule of faith and practice.

Throughout all 66 books, the Bible had 40+ writers, and @1,400 years there is one author, God. He spoke His inspired Word through prophets and human writers and that Word has relevance to how we live today. (Hebrews 1:1, 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21)

GOD

We believe the God of the Bible is the One and Only true God.

God made the world & everything in it. He made man in His image and to have fellowship with Him. He depends on no other being for His existence. He exists eternally as one God in three persons – Father, Son & Holy Spirit; a mystery beyond our understanding. He is perfectly good and acts according to His own good pleasure, including the plan of salvation which is offered because of His great mercy toward us.
(Genesis 1:1, 27, 31; Matthew 3:16-17; Ephesians 1:11; 1 Peter 1:3).

JESUS

We believe Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God, the Savior of mankind.

Fully God
He eternally existed with the Father & the Holy Spirit, possessing all of the attributes of God. Even while Incarnate, Jesus forgave sins (Mark 2:5), accepted worship (John 20:28) and taught of His unique relationship with the Father (John 10:30). 

Fully Man
Born of a virgin, He lived in submission to His earthly parents, had a fully human body, grew in stature and wisdom (Luke 2:4), learned a trade (Mark 6:3) and experienced all of the temptations we experience (Hebrews 

A Perfect Life
Without sin; all of His actions were as they should be. He obeyed the Father (John 5:19; Luke 22:42), spoke the words of the Father (John 12:50) and experienced temptation but did not sin (Hebrews 4:15). 

His Atoning Death
He was sent by the Father especially to die for us (Mark 10:45; John 3:16-18). His life was a ransom for us, to set us free from sin (1 Timothy 2:6). By His death, He paid the penalty for our sin, enduring God’s wrath agains us for our sin (Romans 3:25-26, 4:25).

His Resurrection, ascension, return
On the third day, Jesus rose from the dead, demonstrating God’s acceptance of His sacrifice for all those who would repent and believe (Romans 1:4, 4:25). He ascended to heaven and will one day return (Acts 1:11). Christ’s return will bring God’s plan of salvation to completion (Romans 8:21, 2 Peter 3:7-13, Revelation 21:1-22:6.

HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the person and work of the Holy Spirit, the third member of the Trinity.

We don’t ask the question, “What would Jesus do?” We ask the question, “What is Jesus doing?” because we believe God is at work through His Holy Spirit: 
• In our world, convicting the world of sin (John 16:8)
• In our lives, through inner transformation (Ezekiel 36:25-27, John 3:5-8, Titus 3:4-7, 1 Corinthians 6:11, Galatians 5:22-23) & empowerment (Isaiah 61:1-3, Luke 1:13-17, Acts 1:4-8, 2:38, 8:4-25, 10:44-46).
• In His Church, through the gifts of the Spirit given to encourage the Body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12-14).

THE GOSPEL

We believe man was created good (in the image of God) but voluntarily rebelled against God and stands in need of salvation.

The Gospel is the “good news” that God has provided salvation for all who place faith in Jesus Christ. God’s gift of salvation has been given to Christians, but the evidence of that salvation is lived out in the continual work of God’s Spirit. The Gospel isn’t a sin management tool or an instrument of social justice – it is both. The Gospel means we are transformed people who are transforming our world. (1 Corinthians 15:3; Ephesians 2:1-10).

Our response is to turn to God, to repent and orient our lives toward God (Acts 26:20, 20:21), turn away from sin (Galatians 5:17; Acts 11:18), believe and trust in God’s promises in Christ and commit ourselves to Him as His disciples (Mark 1:15, Romans 3:21-26, Philippians 3:9).

The Gospel reflected in our lives means that we have been saved from the penalty of our sins; we are currently being saved from the power of sin; and one day, when God’s plan of salvation is completed and we are with Christ, we will be like Him and we will be saved from the presence of sin.

COMMUNION

We believe that observing communion is a regular practice of the Church and one we participate in with an attitude of humility and gratitude.

Communion was instituted by Christ Himself (Luke 22:14-22) and Christians are encouraged to participate in communion as remembrance of Christ’s work on the cross (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

BAPTISM

We believe in baptism in water by immersion for every believer.

Water baptism is an outward testimony of what has happened inwardly with the experience of salvation. 
• It represents our dying to the old nature & living in the resurrection power of Christ (Romans 6:1-4; Ephesians 4:21-24).
• It’s a public confession of Jesus’ Lordship in my life (Galatians 2:20).
• It’s an obedient response to Christ’s command (Matthew 28:19).
• Every born again Christian should be baptized (Acts 2:38). 
• Baptism is by immersion per the examples set in Scripture (Jesus – Matthew 3:13-16; Philip & the Ethiopian eunuch – Acts 8:36-38)
• We baptize in the name of the Father, Son & Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19)

DIVINE HEALING

We believe that just as Jesus healed people while on earth, God heals people today.

God didn’t stop working in our world once Jesus ascended into heaven. The healing and deliverance that Jesus brought to those who sought Him is available to us today. We believe that when we pray, God hears us and has the ability to answer our prayers. When we have a need, we pray for each other, knowing that He is sovereign to act in ways that align with His purpose for each of us. (Isaiah 53:4-5, Matthew 8:16-17, Mark 16:18, James 5:13-16, 1 John 5:15).

THE CHURCH

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ of which He is the Head.

The point of our individual lives is to point to Him, to bring Him glory. The point of our existence as a corporate entity is also to point to Him. To proclaim to the world, through our love of God and each other, that God is real, His Word is true, and His love is life-changing. (Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31).

The Personally Identifiable Information of our Visitors and Authorized Customers is only accessible to a limited number of qualified employees who are given a password in order to gain access to the information. We audit our security systems and processes on a regular basis. Sensitive information, such as credit card numbers or social security numbers, is protected by encryption protocols, in place to protect information sent over the Internet. While we take commercially reasonable measures to maintain a secure site, electronic communications and databases are subject to errors, tampering and break-ins, and we cannot guarantee or warrant that such events will not take place and we will not be liable to Visitors or Authorized Customers for any such occurrences.

How can Visitors correct any inaccuracies in Personally Identifiable Information?

Visitors and Authorized Customers may contact us to update Personally Identifiable Information about them or to correct any inaccuracies by emailing us at [Email]

Can a Visitor delete or deactivate Personally Identifiable Information collected by the Site?

We provide Visitors and Authorized Customers with a mechanism to delete/deactivate Personally Identifiable Information from the Site’s database by contacting. However, because of backups and records of deletions, it may be impossible to delete a Visitor’s entry without retaining some residual information. An individual who requests to have Personally Identifiable Information deactivated will have this information functionally deleted, and we will not sell, transfer, or use Personally Identifiable Information relating to that individual in any way moving forward.

What happens if the Privacy Policy Changes?

We will let our Visitors and Authorized Customers know about changes to our privacy policy by posting such changes on the Site. However, if we are changing our privacy policy in a manner that might cause disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information that a Visitor or Authorized Customer has previously requested not be disclosed, we will contact such Visitor or Authorized Customer to allow such Visitor or Authorized Customer to prevent such disclosure.

This policy states how we use cookies, web beacons and other similar technologies. As a part of our commitment to upholding a high standard of transparency in our Privacy Policy, we’ve created this guide to explain the tracking technologies we use on our website.

What are cookies, web beacons, and similar technologies?

Typically, there are two types of tracking technologies we might use on our website:

  1. Cookies: They’re actually a small data file sent from a server to your web browser or mobile device that is stored on your browser cache or mobile device. There are ways you can control your cookies preferences and set whether you want to accept or reject cookies (see what your options are below).
  2. Clear gifs, web beacons, web bugs: These are tiny graphics with a unique identifier similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the movements of web users between pages and websites.

  4. To gather relevant data that helps us deliver marketing and advertising content relevant to your interests.

We might sometimes partner with third-party services who may use various tracking technologies to provide certain services or features on our website, including targeted online marketing or relevant on-site messaging. These third-party services use cookies to anonymously collect data and allow them to recognize your computer or mobile device each time you visit our website. No personally identifiable information is collected by these cookies. The anonymous data they collect is kept separate from the personal information about you as a user that we collect.
