Introduction

My Beliefs People often describe beliefs as assumptions or convictions you hold as true about something, concept or person. As Christians we should all have the same belief. The existence of one God and his son only Jesus Christ who is the redeemer of the world are some of the things that all Christians should accept as true. My beliefs may not be the same for everybody but I am secured with them. I have lots of beliefs and most of them were taught to me by my parents, teachers and friends. I cherish my beliefs like no other possession I have. I believe that Jesus Christ exists and lives in everyone's soul. He's always inside in each and every one of us, knocking in our hearts, waiting for us to accept him in our lives. I also believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and was sent down from heaven to save all men from sins. ...read more.

They have definitely influenced my life. They have taught me to take chances and to work hard towards my personal goals. Without my parents I would not be the person I am today. I also believe that Good friends are a very special thing. I have been blessed with the opportunity to meet some of the nicest and most sensible people in the world. Friends are notes to life's great song, a melody that carries you along, whenever it's a joy or fear, whenever life is hard they're near, in a world of darkness, friends are the light, when life gets hard and goals seem far, it's then you'll know who your true friends are. I like to describe them as the family I chosen for myself. They're the ones I tell my secrets to and support my crazy ideas. They are also the people that inspire me. Without my friends I could've never found the path that I took, & I know now that that was the very best for me. ...read more.

Conclusion

God created us in his own form and created us with two life giving elements body and soul. I also believe that he gave us mind so that we could know God more, heart to love God and will so that we could obey his rules. God loves us so much that He has given us the divine power to choose, create, and share what we most want in this world: love, joy, peace, and happiness. God loves us so much that he gave us his only son Jesus Christ our savior, who died on the cross for our sins. God loves us so much that He has given us the ability to make our lives and this world a paradise if we choose to. Earth, after all, is only Heaven in disguise. My belief is what shapes my perception. I was raised to be a good Christian by my parents and teachers. The way I think or act is based on my beliefs. It may not be important to others but for it is for me. My beliefs are very important to me because without it, I won't be able to distinguish my self form the others. ...read more.
