RPN Statement of Faith
While doctrinal statements in some particulars may be needlessly divisive among Christians, we do not believe that Biblical truth can be totally dismissed in the interests of cooperation.  For Renewal Prayer Network, Inc., we state that the irreducible core of truth which makes it Christian includes:
The authority of Christian Scriptures for our faith; God as Trinity; The Divine-human Person of Jesus Christ; His substitution atonement and resurrection; Salvation by grace through faith in Christ.
In some degree and manner this Gospel will be used by the Spirit of God in producing new Christians.  But when this happens, even though lesser differences and enculturation may exist, Scripture tells us that such believers “are baptized into one Body and made to drink of one and the same Holy Spirit” (1 Cor. 12: 12, 13).  The Renewal Prayer Network, Inc., intends to build its work on the reality of that spiritual union.

Jay lives in Colonie, New York with Adrienne, his wife of 30+ years.  They are proud parents of Bethany and Matthew and can be seen beaming around their beautiful grandchildren.
