God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three
personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and
are one God.
Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; Gen. 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matt 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians
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 the people
by dying on the 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
someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of 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. He
gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to
live under His control daily.
2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; John 14:16, 17; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor. 2:12; 1 Cor.

The Bible is God’s Word to us. 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 the truth without any
mixture of error.
II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20, 21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105, 160; Ps. 12:6;
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People
are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous
potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God
called “sin.” This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in
Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1,2
