The Holy Spirit inspired human authors to write the books of the Bible. The Bible is God’s love letter to all of humanity.
It communicates history, truth and direction on matters in this life and eternity.
Scripture teaches us that God created everything we can see (and even everything we can’t see) out of nothing. Although it might be difficult for
the human mind to comprehend,
the Bible teaches that God is one,
yet has existed since the beginning of time as three distinct and equal persons:
God, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is God’s Son and an equal of the Father. He has existed from the beginning of time, yet lived on earth during the first century A.D. Throughout His earthly life, He was completely God and completely human at the same time. After living a perfect, sinless life, Jesus offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for every
human being who has ever lived by dying on a Roman cross. After three days in the grave, He defeated sin and death by rising from the grave. He then ascended
to Heaven and will return to
earth one day to reign as King.
The Holy Spirit is a full and equal part of the Trinity. He works in the world to make all people understand their need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives inside every follower of Jesus from the moment they decide to follow Him. The Spirit is our power source for life, ministry and spiritual growth. To tap into that power, we must continually yield to the Holy Spirit.
Our disobedient nature has eternally separated us from our Creator. No matter how hard we try, we can never
earn our way back into God’s
presence. Our only hope is to trust Jesus as God’s provision for our disobedience. Whenever you make that decision, you
step into the eternal and abundant life Jesus promises for all believers.
The Bible tells us that the church is the body of Christ in the world today. The New Testament tells us the church is a local body of blood washed believers. The head of the church is Jesus Christ. The biblical purposes of the church are
worship, evangelism, fellowship,
discipleship and ministry to others.
God, in God’s own time and in God’s own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to the promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth, the dead will be raised and Christ will judge all humanity in righteousness.
