Romans 8:24



  • God is the Creator and sovereign Ruler of the universe and all that is in it. [Genesis 1:1, 26, 27]
  • He eternally exists in three distinct personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three co-exist as the one and only God. [Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; Philippians 2:5-11; Colossians 1:15-20]

Jesus Christ

  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth to save us from our sins. [Matthew 1:21; Luke 19:10; John 3:16]
  • He lived a sinless life, even though He was tempted in every way, and willingly offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men and women by dying on a cross. [Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 4:14-15]
  • He demonstrated His power over sin and death by rising from the dead after three days. [1 Corinthians 15:3-4]
  • Shortly after His resurrection, Jesus ascended into Heaven and promised to return. [Acts 1:9-11; 1Thessalonians 4:13-18]
  • Salvation can come only through Jesus Christ. [Acts 4:12; Colossians 1:15-23]

The Holy Spirit

  • The Holy Spirit lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. [Acts 2:38; 1 Corinthians 3:16; Ephesians 1:13-14]
  • The Holy Spirit provides the Christian with understanding of spiritual truth and guidance in doing what is right. [Romans 8:9-17; Galatians 5:22-26]

The Bible

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the final authority in life and doctrine. [Psalm 119:105; 2 Timothy 3:16-17]
  • It was written by human authors under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and is without error. [Proverbs 30:5; 2 Peter 1:20-21]
  • Its content reveals God’s character, our purpose, and life’s meaning. [John 20:31]
  • The Bible’s principles are true for all people, for all places, and for all times. [Psalm 119:160]
