I was born in the Philippines and grew up in Chicago. I have one brother and one sister who are both older than me. My parents and siblings came to Chicago when I was thirteen years old. My wife and I were married in 2003, and we have one daughter.

Statement of Faith
Here is an introduction to the faith I have come to embrace. There are more that could be said and as you get to know me more, you will have a better understanding of the faith that I embrace.
There is one God who made everything out of nothing. Human beings are the crown of Godís creation and valuable in his sight.
Sin is the greatest problem of humanity. Man is sinful means that he has a propensity towards hating God and others. This propensity makes him liable to judgment. Man is sinful also means he does not reflect Godís character.
This one God revealed himself in the person of Jesus. Jesus came to earth to bring about the forgiveness of sins. He died to save people from the judgment of sin, which is death. He rose again to give those who believe in him new life.
The Holy Spirit is Godís presence on earth. The Holy Spirit points the world to Jesus. He convicts people of sin so they would come to Jesus to be saved from the judgment of sin. He shapes those who believe in Jesus so that they may become people whose character reflects Godís character.
The Creator, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are the one God who exists eternally as three persons. The church is the people of the triune God.
