About Us


Thank you for your interest in Spirit'sWord Daily Devotionals, written to be both challenging and encouraging.

The devotions are written by Simon Whitton.  Simon was born in London, England, and was raised as an atheist by his parents, but converted to Christianity aged 18.  He graduated from King's Theological College in Oxford (a private college, not part of Oxford University) with a diploma in Theology and Biblical Studies.

Simon and his wife Janine have been married for 30 years, have four sons and live in the United States.

Currently, there are 126 devotionals posted on the Spirit'sWord website - enough for four months of daily readings - which are looped three times a year.  Another 200 devotionals are in the rough draft stage and will be added when they are completed.

Archived devotions are listed by subject here: Devotions by Subject

Statement of Faith

A place to look for common ground and brotherhood.

Jesus was innocent, we are not. Jesus the son of God was innocent, yet died on a cross to pay the price for our sins.  Those that believe this and confess this to God are part of Christ's church, and we accept them as part of the fellowship of believers.

We can be further defined as believing the following:

1. We believe:  The old and new testament scriptures are the fully inspired word of God, without error in their original inspiration and all they affirm.

2. We believe:  The word of God has power and authority; it has the full endorsement of God, who is omnipotent.

3. We believe:  In only one God, who exists eternally in three persons: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

4. We believe:  Other religions and beliefs are not alternative paths to God or heaven; but instead will lead to judgment by God, for Christ is the only way.

5. We believe:  That our physical lives are brief, and that eventually every person will be judged by God.  The righteous will be rewarded with Heaven and the unrighteous condemned to Hell. Only faith produces righteousness; in addition faith produces 'good works' which will be rewarded in the next life.

6. We believe:  We are called to be Holy and mature like Christ, to live lives that bring glory to God and are blameless before the world.  We should be quick to acknowledge all failure and to confess our dependence on Christ's sacrifice.

7. We believe:  Satan was completely defeated by the shed blood and resurrection of Christ.  Despite this, God has granted Satan limited power for a short time, which he is using to continue his war against God, the church and all of creation.

8. We believe:  The Church is called to have compassion on the poor, marginalized, weak, and the sick; and should spread the gospel to all creation.

9. We believe:  In the Apostle's Creed, and affirm that it represents the historic belief of the Church of which we are a part.

The Apostle's Creed

We believe in God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His only son, Our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell;
The third day HE rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven, sits at the right
Hand of God, the Father Almighty;
From thence He shall come to judge the
Living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy universal church,
The forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting.
