►Jesus, God's son, is our Savior.

►The Bible is God's word, our complete guidebook for life.

 

 

HERE'S THE LONG VERSION:

GOD – God is the creator and ruler of the universe.  He has eternally existed in three personalities:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  They are co-equal, yet one God.

(Genesis 1:1, 26-27/ Psalm 90:2/ 1 Peter 1:2/ 2 Corinthians 3:14)

JESUS CHRIST – Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father.  He lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on the cross.  He arose from the dead after three days and demonstrated his power over sin and death.  He ascended to heaven and will return again to earth to reign as King of King and Lord of Lords. 

(Matthew 1:22-23/Isaiah 9:6/John 1:1-5/John 14: 10-30/ Hebrews 4: 14-15/ 1 Corinthians 15: 3-4/ Romans 1: 3-4/Acts 1: 9-11/ 2 Timothy 6: 14-15/ Titus 2:13)

THE HOLY SPIRIT- the Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son.  He is present in the world to make individuals aware of their need for Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every Christian giving power for living, insight for understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right.

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

PEOPLE – Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in character.  He is the supreme object of God’s creation.  Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred by a sinful nature which separates him from God.

(Genesis 1:27/ Psalm 8: 3-6/ Isaiah 53:6a/59:1-2, Romans 3:23)

THE BIBLE - The Bible is God’s word to all men.  It is written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian belief and living.  Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.

(2 Timothy 3:16; 1:13/ 2 Peter 1:20-21/Psalms 119, 105, 160, 12:6/Proverbs 30:5)
