Statement of Faith

I'm not there yet,
I haven't arrived;
I still need Jesus
To walk by my side.

I still need His mercy,
I still need His grace;
I still need His forgiveness,
But I'm still in the race.

I'm still not perfect,
I'm not even close;
It's only His grace that
Gives me cause to boast.

I'm still on the journey,
But because of His grace,
I'll arrive home in heaven
Some glorious day!

2002 J M McIntosh 

Not that I have already obtained 
all this, or have already been made 
perfect,  but I press on to take hold 
of that for which Christ Jesus took 
hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider 
myself yet to have taken hold of it.  
But one thing I do: Forgetting what is 
behind and  straining toward what is ahead,  
I press on toward the goal to win the prize  
for which God has called me heavenward 
in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:12-14)
