… that the Bible is God’s personal message to mankind. It consists of 66 books, each without error in the original writings.
… that there is only one God, eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, and existing everywhere at one time. He is perfect, equally loving and just—a holy lawgiver. Though one, He consists of three co-equal, distinct persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
… that God created spirit beings—angels—that serve Him; that one, leading many others, rebelled; though not nearly as powerful as God, Satan presently rules this world as an enemy of God; but in the future, he will be cast into the Lake of Fire specially prepared for him and his followers.
… that man was created by God as a special friend; then rebelled and joined Satan’s ranks, resulting in all mankind being helplessly sinful. That sin incurs a debt payable only by physical and eternal death.
… that God came to earth as the God-man Jesus, lived a sinless life, and thus having no sin-debt of His own, lovingly paid man’s sin-debt by dying in his place, after which He came back to life, subsequently returning to heaven. That for all those who with confidence believe that Jesus died in their place, God restores the friendship and freely gives them eternal life with Him.
… that the Holy Spirit lives inside those who trust in Jesus; that He is a daily teacher and friend, showing man how to avoid sin, encouraging and empowering man to live right.
… that there are many false religions and churches, but all those who trust in Jesus belong to a true invisible church, often visible as a local church.
… that in the future, Jesus will return to take those who love Him back to heaven, finally closing this world age by judging Satan and all who reject Him (Jesus).
