Janis Jakes' Statement of Faith
I believe Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for my sins (and yours), rose again on the third day and sits at the right hand of the Father. I believe He will return for those who belong to His kingdom, and of His kingdom there will be no end. And, I believe that salvation is found in no other name than JESUS.
(Acts, 4:12; Luke 1:33; Acts 2:32-33; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Romans 10:9-10)
