I was born, Christopher M. Fulgham, a sinner, doomed to die in my sin, if not for God’s perfect love, mercy, and grace, gifted to me through His Son, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who was:
- God in the flesh,
- born of the virgin Mary,
- lived a sinless life,
- willingly crucified unto death in atonement for my sins, and
- overcoming death, resurrected on the third day
so that I also, through belief in Him, as a result of His effectual call, may overcome death and have eternal life forever in His holy, triune presence: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
