About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people 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 and will return again someday for His disciples and will eternally reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

About 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 people aware of their need for Jesus Christ, and lives in them 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 spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.

About Human Beings
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by sin that separates people from God and causes many problems in life. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude that separates people from God and causes many problems in life.
Gen. 1:27; Ps. 8:3-6; Isa. 53:6a; Rom. 3:23;
Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness, can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Salvation begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Tit. 3:5; Gal. 3:26; Rom. 5:1
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. “To be eternally united with God is Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
John 3:16; John 2:25; John 5:11-13; Rom. 6:23; Rev. 20:15; Matt. 1:8; Matt. 2:44,46
