There is one living and true God. He exists eternally with His various attributes in three Persons as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God is the Sovereign Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer of the Universe
Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14
He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate HIs power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Jesus is the Son of God
The Holy Spirit empowers believers for godly living
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son. The Spirit reveals Christ, convicts of sin, and leads to repentance and faith. He indwells every disciple of Christ from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.
Human beings, both male and female, are created in the image of God, and thus are of infinite value. God designed man to have fellowship with Him, but man became alienated from God through disobedience. We are all born with a sinful nature and choose to sin against God. We are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through our own efforts.
Salvation is the unearned gift of God flowing out of God’s love and grace. Human beings receive this gift through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ. The blood of Jesus, shed on the cross, provides the basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, salvation is available to mankind by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
