god the father
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. We believe that God is eternal and that He revealed Himself as one God existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Genesis 1:1,26-27; 3:22 | Psalm 90:2 | Matthew 28:19 | I Peter 1:2 | II Corinthians 13:14
god the son (jesus)
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 arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return to earth again to reign as 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
God the holy spirit
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as 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. The Christian seeks to live under His direction daily.
II Corinthians 3:17 | John 16:7-13, 14:16-17 | Acts 1:8 | I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16 | Ephesians 1:13, 5:18 | Galatians 5:25
Salvation is a gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can Man be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23, 5:1 | Ephesians 2:8-9 | John 14:6, 1:12 | Titus 3:5 | Galatians 3:26
the word of god
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 an attitude and posture of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.
Genesis 1:27 | Psalm 8:3-6 | Isaiah 53:6a, 59:1-2 | Romans 3:23
