God is the one and only true God, yet He exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is the creator, so everything belongs to Him and is under His control. God is holy and good. He is majestic and righteous. God is love. God is all-knowing and He is at work in the world to bring about His will. No person, thing, or idea compares to God.
God reveals Himself to us through the Bible and it is 100 percent accurate, reliable, and authoritative. You can trust what it says.
People are made in God’s image and for His pleasure. We believe that though we are born good, each of us reaches an age where we knowingly fall short of God’s intention, or ideal, for people. In other words, we sin. As a result, we are all separated from Him, even though He wants an intimate relationship with each of us.
That is why Jesus, God the Son, came and lived on this earth, died, and rose again. Through His death and resurrection, He defeated sin and death, making our salvation possible. God offers His free gift of salvation to all who believe in Jesus and accept Him as Savior – the only way to be forgiven and reconciled to God. Those who believe in Jesus express their faith in Him by confessing that Jesus is Lord and being baptized (immersed in water). In this trusting act of baptism, we receive forgiveness for our sins and are given the Holy Spirit as a gift that lives inside us.
