About The Bible
The Bible is God’s word to all men. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error.
(2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:20, 21; 2 Tim 1:13; Ps 119:105,160, 12:6; Prov 30:5).
God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.
(Gen 1:1, 26, 27; 3:22; Ps 90:2; Matt 28:19; 1 Pet 1:2; 2; 1 Cor 13:14).
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 toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates man from God.
(Gen 1:27; Ps 8:3-6; Is 53:6a; Rom 3:23; Is 59:1, 2).
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 eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.
(Jn 3:16; Jn 2:25; Jn 5:11-13)
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Him- self 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.
(Matt 1:22, 23; Is 9:6; Jn 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Heb 4:14, 15; 1 Cor15:3, 4; Rom 1:3, 4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Tim 6:14, 15; Tit 2:13).
