Jesus Christ Is God’s Son
Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He was born of a virgin as both God and man, lived a sinless life, died to atone for the sins of human beings, was buried, arose from the grave, ascended into heaven, and will literally return to earth.
I Timothy 2:5-7, John 1:13-16
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the divine Helper, Assistant, Counselor and Instructor and His work is to reveal Christ, convict men of sin, lead to repentance, guide believers, comfort, strengthen, empower and sanctify the soul.
Man’s Need for God
Human beings are the special creations of God, unlike other creatures, we are made in His image. Humanity fell through the sin of the first man, Adam, and all human beings are sinners in need of salvation.
Genesis 1:26, II Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 10:1-4, Romans 3:23
Salvation is a gift through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. Every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven, while those who choose to die in their sins will spend eternity in hell. This is not because God is vindictive, but rather because He is Holy. He has made a way of payment for humanity, but when a person chooses to pay for his own sin, God will allow that choice.
Romans 3:23, 6:23, 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16
The church is a local body of baptized believers with the Lord Jesus Christ as the Head. The Church exists as Christ’s hands and feet on earth. We are to encourage one another, teach, make disciples and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world around us. Ephesians 2:19-22, Colossians 1:18, I Peter 5:1-4, Matthew 28:19-20
