1. There is only one God. He is all powerful, all knowing and omnipresent. He is the Creator of all things. He exists in three persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

  2. God created humanity for the purpose of worship and blessed them with free will, based of His image, to know and have a relationship with Him.

  3. Humanity used free will to defy God and sinned, ruining their perfect relationship with God, and death entered into the world. They were cast out of paradise. Their sin caused a change in the world.

  4. God, in his holy state, cannot sin and sin cannot exist in His presence. But God loves humanity, so He continued to seek out a relationship with them.

  5. God created a plan of sacrificial atonement for the sins of humanity, making them right in His eyes and allowing them to come back to Him.

  6. God’s plan for the ultimate salvation of His people involved Jesus Christ, God Himself in the flesh, to come to humanity.

  7. Jesus Christ was born through the Virgin Mary from the Holy Spirit. He was fully God and fully man. He lived a perfect, sinless life.

  8. He ministered to the people, healed the sick, cast out demons, performed miracles through the power of the Holy Spirit and taught humanity about the love of God.

  9. He was seized, tortured, rejected and crucified. This was a part of God’s plan of salvation. The sins of the world were placed on Him, and He gave up His Spirit. He died on our behalf, as the ultimate sacrifice for us all, taking the sins of the world with Him to the grave.

  10. On the third day, God raised Him from the dead. He appeared to many witnesses, then ascended back to Heaven.

  11. Jesus Christ is alive today, and He continues to intercede for us, offering us forgiveness of our sins through the acceptance of His sacrifice on our behalf and the profession of faith in Him.

  12. We can all accept His love and sacrifice on our behalf and become adopted children of God. We do this by surrendering control and professing our belief and faith that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that God raised Him from the dead.

  13. The forgiveness of sins (past, present and future) restores us to the created, sinless state humanity was created in and allows us to return into the presence of God.

  14. There are two biblical practices set in place by God for His people to observe. The baptism of believers upon their acceptance of Jesus Christ as their Lord, and the observance of the Lord’s Supper, to remind His people of His sacrifice on their behalf. These practices do not bring about salvation but are done in obedience to God’s commands.

  15. The Bible is the infallible Word of God written by human authors inspired by the Holy Spirit. Through the Bible, we receive instructions for living a life surrendered to God and we learn about God.

  16. Prayer is communicating with God. Through prayer, we lay our praises and requests before God, and He responds.

We, as Christians, are called and saved by God to be His hands and feet, acting as His ambassadors in the world, bringing His love, joy and peace to those on needs and leading others to Jesus Christ and salvation
