Mission & Vision
Laura Sandretti ministries exists to help women think more deeply about what they believe about Jesus Christ and the cross, in order to experience and understand God’s love in a way that impacts their life and brings glory to God.
About the Bible
I believe the Bible is the Spirit-inspired, inerrant Word of God (2 Timothy 3:15-17, I Corinthians 2:13). It is authoritative, true, and applicable to our lives (Psalm 119:4, John 17:17, Hebrews 4:2,12). It is the revelation of God’s will for the salvation of mankind through Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15).
About the Triune God
I believe God is eternal and is one God existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Hebrews 1:3, 1 Corinthians 8:6). He is the sovereign Ruler and Creator of all (Revelation 4:11, Colossians 1:16-17, Psalm 24:1).
I believe Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and fully God and fully man (Luke 1:26-38). He lived a sinless life, died on the cross for the sins of mankind, rose again to life, and ascended to heaven. He gives those who believe in him a new life and identity (2 Corinthians 5:17, Romans 6:4) and He is the only One who can save us from our sins and reconcile us to God (Matthew 1:21b, 1 Corinthians 15).
About Mankind & Sin
I believe that entire human race, though made in God’s image, has inherited a sinful nature that separates us from God (Genesis 1:27, 3, Romans 3:9-20). Apart from Christ, we were dead in our sins and transgressions, deserving of wrath, and in need of salvation (Ephesians 2:1-3).
I believe that we receive salvation, the forgiveness of our sins, and reconciliation to God, by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ and not by works (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 5:10, Romans 3:21-26).
About the Holy Spirit
I believe the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and to convict, regenerate, seal, indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer, in whom He indwells at the moment of salvation, for life and service (Romans 8:11, John 16:8-13, 1 Corinthians 12:12-14, Ephesians 1:13-14, Titus 3:5, 1 John 2:20-27).
About the Future
I believe that Jesus will return again (Acts 1:11). Whether we spend eternity with God or separated from him is determined by our response to the grace and salvation of Jesus Christ (Daniel 12:1-2, John 3:36, Hebrews 9:28, Revelation 20:7-15).
“Grace must find expression in life, otherwise it is not grace.”
~ Karl Barth
“Faith’s only function is to receive what grace offers.”
~ John Stott
But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.
~ Titus 3:4-5
Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, forbearance and patience, not realizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?
~ Romans 2:4
“Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.”
2 Timothy 2:1
