Statements of Faith

Paul tells us that we are not to be conformed to this world (don’t copy their behaviours and customs – New Living Translation), but we are to be transformed by the renewal of our minds. Our minds have been shaped mainly by the communities we have grown up in and our life experiences, and if, for you, those two things weren’t godly, it is easy to see why your thinking and emotions can be unhealthy and possibly damaging to you and others.

A person who has lived in an environment filled with ungodly influence can have the wrong perspective of God, themselves and others, severely limiting their potential in God.

How is this fixed? The process of renewing your mind is not so much about undoing unwanted patterns of thinking as it is about establishing new patterns of thinking.

Godly patterns of thinking are established as you set your mind on what God says about Himself, you and others. By regularly focusing your mind on what God says, you will renew your mind and emotions to be in line with God’s will and your old patterns of thinking will fade away to the place where you find yourself free to develop intimacy with God and to fulfil His extraordinary purposes for you.

This page contains scripture-based statements to speak (not just think) over yourself. Find the statements that address the ungodly areas of thinking and believing that you need to correct in your life and make it a habit of speaking them over yourself day and night (Joshua 1:8).

This is your first step towards the freedom that God desires for you!
