• 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 (The Trinity).

Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22; Deuteronomy 6:4; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1-14;

1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 5:7


  • He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise.
  • He reigns with providential care over the universe and the flow of human history goes according to His purposes and plan.
  • God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

Genesis 1:1, 2:7; Exodus 3:14, 6:2-3; Matthew 23:9; Mark 1:9-11; John 4:24; Romans 8:14-15; Ephesians4:6; Colossians 1:15; 1 Timothy 1:17; Romans 8:28-30



  • 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 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 some day to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14, 1:1-3; 1 Corinthians 15:34 Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13


  • 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 16:7-1 3, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18, Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12


  • 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.
  • It is the inerrant, infallible, authoritative, and sufficient Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Proverbs 30:5; Psalms 119:105, 160, 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 problems in life.
Genesis 1:26-27; Psalms 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2


  • Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it.
  • We can never make up for our sins 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 (repentance) and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved.
  • Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6,1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1; Acts 4:12


  • Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity.
  • If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it.
  • Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian.
  • It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.
John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10, 12:5-11; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 1John 2-3; 1 Corinthians 3:10-15; Matthew 7:13-27


  • 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 in union with Him is eternal life.
  • Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.

John 3:16, 2:25; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15; Matthew 5:8
