God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons revealed to us as: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
Bible Verses About God:
Genesis 1:1, 26-27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 5:7.
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 of disobedience called “sin”. This attitude separates man from God. We believe that God has a destiny for each believer and that His purpose for us involves the establishing of His Kingdom in our lives.
Bible Verses About Man:
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2; John 15:16; Ephesians 2:10.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. 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 again to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
Bible Verses About Jesus:
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-4, 14; John 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3-4; II Corinthians 5:14-15; Matthew 24:30; Revelations 1:7; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; Titus 2:13.
About 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 control daily. We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is an endowment of power available to every believer subsequent to conversion. We believe in the present supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit through the believers by the manifestation of His gifts.
Bible Verses About the Holy Spirit:
II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, John 14:16-17, 26; John, 15:26; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16, 12:7-11, 28; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18, 4:7-16; Galatians 5:22, 23, 25; Luke 24: 49; Acts 2:4; Romans 12:6-8.
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 confession of faith in His life, death and resurrection.
Bible Verses About Salvation:
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1; Romans 10:9-10.
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternaly separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are places of eternal existence.
Bible Verses About Eternity:
John 3:16; 1 John 2:25; 1 John 5:11-13; Acts 24:15; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 18:8; Matthew 25:44-46; Daniel 12:2.
