God is the Creator of the entire universe and is also the ruler of the entire universe. He has existed eternally in three persons: God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three persons are all equal and are one God.
GENESIS 1:1,26,27; 3:22; PSALM 90:2; MATTHEW 28:19; I PETER 1:2; II CORINTHIANS 13:14
Man is created in the image of God. He is the highest object of God’s creation. Although man has incredible potential for good, he is flawed by an attitude of rebellion against God; this is called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again to earth to reign as our King of kings, and Lord of 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
Salvation in God’s free gift to all mankind. Man can never make up for his sin by good works or self-improvement. It is only by trusting in Jesus Christ that man is saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one accepts Jesus Christ into their life by faith.
ROMANS 6:23; EPHESIANS 2:8-9; JOHN 14:6, 1:12; TITUS 3:5; GALATIANS 3:26; ROMANS 5:1
About the Bible
The Bible is God’s word to all of mankind. It was written by human authors from all walks of life under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for man. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
II TIMOTHY 3:16; II PETER 1:20-21; II TIMOTHY 1:13; PSALM 119:105,160, 12:6; PROVERBS 30:5
