WHO GOD IS
The Bible tells that there is one God. He is three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We know this is confusing. We can’t fully understand it either, but we believe it anyway and take God at His word. Even though God is beyond our comprehension, we know this for sure: God is a good God. Even when your world is shaken, God is still with you and loves you. His love is unconditional, unending, and you do not have to do anything to receive it.
Psalm 100:5; Matthew 28:19
THE BIBLE IS GOD’S WORD
We know and believe that the Bible is true. It is God’s Word to the world, spoken through 40 people who wrote it as God inspired them over the course of approximately 1500 years. We believe that God reveals Himself and speaks to us through His Word. We believe that His Word has power to make a difference in our hearts and lives because that’s what God promises and that’s what it has done for us.
2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16
Talking about sin always makes us uncomfortable and we prefer not to face it. Sin is, however, something we all struggle with every day. We don’t deny it. We don’t explain it away. We are honest about it with God and with each other. Sin hurts us. Sin damages our relationships with God and others. God has provided a solution to our sin problem.
Romans 3:23-24; 1 John 1:8-9
God sent His son, Jesus, to be born as a human to pay the penalty for our sin. He lived a perfect life for us because we can’t. He died on the cross and rose three days later because we can’t. What Jesus did for us makes it possible for us to have a relationship with God. God sent His son, Jesus, into the world so that you can live forever in His love. Nothing you can say or do will ever stop God from loving you.
John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9
