1. About God
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are co-equal and are one God.
Gen. 1:1,26,27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matt 28:19; I Pet 1:2; II Cor 13:14
2. About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless 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 again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matt 1:22,23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Heb 4:14,15; I Cor 15:3,4; Rom 1:3,4; Acts 1:9-11; I Tim 6:14,15; Titus 2:13
3. 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 spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His direction, daily.
II Cor 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16,17; Acts 1:8; I Cor 2:12, 3:16; Eph 1:13; Gal 5:25; Eph 5:18
4. About the Bible
The Bible is God's word to us. Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, wrote it. It is a source for truth for Christian belief and living.
II Tim 3:16, 1:13; II Pet 1:20,21; Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6; Pro 30:5
5. 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 sin that separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
Gen 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a, 59:1,2; Rom 3:23
6. About Salvation
Salvation is God's free gift to us but we must accept 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 life by faith.
Rom 6:23; Eph 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Gal 3:23; Rom 5:1
