in one God who created all there is.
that this one God has one Son whose name is Jesus.
that God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are three eternal Persons but yet one God.
that we human beings are the height of God’s creation. We were created to follow and be in intimate relationship with God.
that all human beings have rebelled (sinned) against God and have sought to do life without Him or His plan for our lives.
that this rebellion has resulted in a broken relationship with God and in suffering and death.
that, in spite of our rebellion, God still loves us and sent His Son Jesus to take the penalty for our rebellion by suffering and dying on a cross.
that God the Father accepted His Son’s sacrifice, raised Him from the dead, and sat Him at His right hand in Heaven as the King over all creation.
that those who ask God to accept Jesus’ sacrifice on their behalf are forgiven of their rebellion, are given a fresh start to follow God, and given eternal life after death.
that those who do this become part of “the Body of Christ”, the Church. They are brought together to serve one another and reach out together to the world with the love of God.
that God fills His Church with the Holy Spirit who gives His people love, power, and self-discipline to accomplish this service and outreach.
