ABOUT GOD

GOD IS THE CREATOR AND RULER OF THE UNIVERSE.  HE HAS ETERNALLY EXISTED IN THREE PERSONS:  THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.  THESE THREE ARE EQUAL AND ARE ONE GOD.

Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 1 Corinthians 13:14


ABOUT JESUS CHRIST

JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD.  HE IS ONE WITH THE FATHER.  JESUS LIVED A SINLESS HUMAN LIFE AND OFFERED HIMSELF AS THE PERFECT SACRIFICE FOR THE SINS OF ALL PEOPLE BY DYING ON A CROSS.  HE AROSE FROM THE DEAD AND HE ASCENDED TO HEAVEN AND WILL RETURN AGAIN SOMEDAY TO EARTH.

Matthew 1:22, 23;  Isaiah 9:6;  John1:1-5;  14:10-30;  Hebrews 4:14, 15;  1 Corinthians 15:3-4;  Romans 1:3-4;  Acts 1:9-11;  1 Timothy 6:14-15;  Titus 2:13


ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT

THE HOLY SPIRIT IS ONE WITH THE FATHER AND THE SON OF GOD.  HE IS PRESENT IN THE WORLD TO MAKE MEN AWARE OF THEIR NEED FOR JESUS CHRIST.  HE ALSO LIVES IN EVERY CHRISTIAN FROM THE MOMENT OF SALVATION.  HE PROVIDES THE CHRISTIAN WITH POWER FOR LIVING, UNDERSTANDING OF SPIRITUAL TRUTH AND GUIDANCE IN DOING WHAT IS RIGHT. 

1 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18

 


ABOUT THE BIBLE

THE BIBLE IS GOD’S WORD TO US.  IT WAS WRITTEN BY HUMAN WRITERS, UNDER THE CONTROL, INSTRUCTION AND SUPERNATURAL GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.  IT IS THE SUPREME SOURCE OF TRUTH FOR CHRISTIAN BELIEFS AND LIVING.  IT IS TRUE IN ALL THAT IT AFFIRMS ABOUT GOD, HUMANITY, HISTORY AND THE WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE.

1 Timothy 3:16; 1 Peter 1:20-21; 1 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105; 160; 12:6;  Proverbs 30:5


ABOUT SALVATION

SALVATION IS GOD’S FREE GIFT TO US, BUT WE MUST RECEIVE IT.  WE CAN NEVER MAKE UP FOR OUR SIN BY SELF-IMPROVEMENT OR GOOD WORKS.  ONLY BY TRUSTING IN JESUS CHRIST AS GOD’S OFFER OF FORGIVENESS CAN ANYONE BE SAVED FROM SIN’S PENALTY.  ETERNAL LIFE BEGINS THE MOMENT ONE RECEIVES JESUS CHRIST INTO HIS LIFE BY FAITH.  HE IS THEN OUR SAVIOR AND LORD. 

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1


ABOUT ETERNITY

PEOPLE WERE CREATED TO EXIST FOREVER.  WE WILL EITHER EXIST ETERNALLY SEPARATED FROM GOD BY SIN, OR ETERNALLY WITH GOD THROUGH FORGIVENESS AND SALVATION.  HEAVEN AND HELL ARE REAL PLACES OF ETERNAL EXISTENCE.

John 3:16; 2:25; 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 1:8; 25:46
