GOD

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe who exists eternally as a Trinity of three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

John 1:12, Romans 8:15-16

 

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the fully divine and fully human Son of god who lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the sacrifice for our sins dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days, ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again to gather all who believe in Him.

Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 1:22-23,

THE HOLY SPIRIT

HUMAN BEINGS

Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:3-6,
Isaiah 53:6a59:1-2, Romans 3:23

 

THE BIBLE

The Bible is God's Word to us written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the basis for what we believe and the way we live.

2 Peter 1:20-21, Proverbs 30:5,
Psalm 12:6, 119:105, 160


Example:
MARRIAGE

Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in an exclusive relationship; It is the only relationship appropriate for sexual intimacy.

Genesis 2:18-25, Matthew 19:4-6,
Romans 1:18-28, 1 Corinthians 6:12-20, 7:1-3

 

SALVATION

Salvation is God's free gift to us which we receive by trusting in Jesus Christ for forgiveness. We are born again by faith alone, not by any good works that we do.

Romans 5:1, 6:23, Titus 3:5,
Ephesians 2:8-9, Galatians 3:26,
John 14:16, 1:12

 

ETERNAL SECURITY

Eternal security is sealed by faith in Jesus Christ who died for all of our sins – past, present and future. Once we have been born again we cannot lose our salvation. We did not earn our salvation through good works and we cannot lose it through bad ones.

John 10:29, 2 Timothy 1:12,
Hebrews 7:2510:1014,
1 Peter 1:3-5

Eternity exists for all people who will either live forever in God's presence in heaven or forever separated from Him in hell.

John 3:16, 4:17,
Romans 6:23, 8:17-18,
1 Corinthians 2:7-9, Revelation 20:15
