God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three Persons, who are co-equal:
The Holy Spirit
Genesis 1:1, 26-27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14
We have been created in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although we have tremendous potential for good, we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates humanity from God.
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2
Humankind was created to exist forever. Men and women can live this existence separated from God through disobedience, or in union with God through faith and salvation. Heaven and Hell are the future places of existence destined for those who live in union with God (Heaven) and those who choose to remain separated from God (Hell).
John 2:25; 3:16; I John 5:11-13; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 18:8; 25:44-46
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a life free of sin and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His victory over sin and death. He ascended into the glory of Heaven and is there now where He rules as the head over His Kingdom. He will return to earth again to reign forever as the King of all kings and Lord of all lords.
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13
About Personal Salvation
Salvation is a gift given to humanity by God. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good deeds. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6; 1:12; Titus 3-5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
About Eternal Security
Because eternal life is based on the gift of God to sinful persons through grace, the believer in Christ is secure in that salvation for all eternity. His or her salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. The Christian’s life of righteousness is motivated by God’s grace, not by fear of losing salvation.
John 10:28-29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14; I Peter 1:3-5
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He is also referred to in scripture as the Spirit of Jesus. He is co-equal with the Father and the Son. He works to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides Christians with the power for daily living, understanding of spiritual truth, and power for effective witnessing to others. The Christian is commanded to live under the Spirit’s control every day.
II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18
About the Bible
The Bible is inspired written record of God’s revelation of Himself to humanity, coming to fulfillment in the person of Jesus Christ.The Bible was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Being inerrant and infallible, it is the perfect source of instruction/authority for knowing God and living the Christian life.
II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160; 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
About Christian Maturity
The Bible teaches us that it is God’s desire for every Christian to grow to full spiritual maturity. This means that the goal of Christian growth is activated in our lives through the working of the Holy Spirit. We also cultivate spritual growth through such personal disciplines as: Bible study, prayer, fellowship with other Christians, and sharing Christ with those who don’t know Him. Growth in Christlikeness is the surest evidence of our relationship with the Lord.
Ephesians 4:13; Romans 8:29; II Timothy 3:16-17; I Peter 2:2; John 16:24; Hebrews 10:25; I Peter 3:15
