About God
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has always existed in three personalities: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. The three personalities of God form the Trinity.
About God the Father
God the Father is an infinite, personal Spirit, who is perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. He cares about us and is involved in our lives. He answers prayer and gives eternal life to all who come to Him by believing in Jesus Christ.
About God the Son
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal 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 after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return some day to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
About God the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. 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. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when he or she is saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
About the Bible
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because the Bible is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
About Human Beings
People are made in the spiritual image of God; to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
About Salvation
Salvation is God’s 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. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his or her life by faith.
About Eternal Security
Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you genuinely have been saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.
About Eternity
People were created to exist forever. People who accept Christ’s forgiveness and salvation will live with God in heaven throughout eternity. Those who reject Christ will spend eternity in hell. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
