– The Bible is God’s Word. It is correct. It is the only rule for our faith and everyday life. It does not fail.
– God is the one true God. He has always lived in three equal persons: the Father, Jesus His Son, and the Holy Spirit.
– God loves all people. He wants all people to be right with Him, but our sins block the way.
– All people have sinned. If our sins are not forgiven, God will judge us. Punishment in Hell will never stop.
– Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins. His blood has power to take all our sin and guilt. Nothing else works.
– The only way people can go to Heaven and live with God is through personal faith in Jesus Christ. Anyone who trusts in Jesus as Savior is “born-again” into God’s family forever.
– God’s Holy Spirit guides and gives power to His children, called Christians or believers. He holds us safe forever. Nothing can make us lose our salvation.
– Jesus Christ will come again. All people who love and serve Him will live with Him in Heaven forever.
