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 co-equal and are one God.
ABOUT JESUS CHRIST
Jesus Christ is the Son of God, being fully God and fully man. He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. 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 physically again someday to earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.
ABOUT THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is co-equal 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. He gives every believer a spiritual gift(s) when they are saved.
ABOUT THE BIBLE
God has superintended human authors so that, using their own individual personalities, they composed and recorded without error God’s revelation to man in the words of the original autographs.
ABOUT HUMAN BEINGS
People are made in the image of God, to be like Him in character and are the supreme object of God’s creation. Every person, however, is separated from God by sin. All mankind is born into the world with a nature which not only possesses no spark of divine life, but is essentially and unchangeably wicked apart from divine grace.
Salvation is God’s free gift to us. 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 of eternal death and separation from God. Eternal life begins the moment one trusts Jesus Christ for his salvation.
ABOUT ETERNAL SECURITY
The person who has placed their faith in Jesus Christ is secure in their salvation through the completed work of Jesus Christ. At the moment of salvation, the Holy Spirit indwells the Christian believer and He is the guarantee or down-payment for the Christian’s salvation. Because salvation is based on the faithfulness of Jesus Christ, who is God and His works do not waver, the Christian can be confident in the eternal security of God’s gift of salvation.
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin in Hell or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation with Him. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
