He has eternally existed in three (3) personalities: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These are CO-equal and are one God. Examine these Scriptures: Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; 2:22; Psalms 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14.
Jesus: : Jesus Christ is the Son of God, Virgin born. He is CO-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return someday to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. Examine these Scriptures: Matthew 1:22,23; Hebrews 4:14, 15; Acts 1:9-11; Isaiah 9:6; I Corinthians 15:3,4; I Timothy 6:14,15; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Romans 1:3,4; Titus 2:13. .
The Holy Spirit: : The Holy Spirit is CO-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily. Examine these Scriptures: II Corinthians 3:17; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 5:18; John 16:7-13, 14:16, 17; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Galatians 5:25. .
The Bible: : The Bible is God’s Word to us. Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, wrote it. It is the supreme source of truth for a Christian’s beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error. Examine these Scriptures: II Timothy 3:16; Psalms 119:105, 160, 12:6; II Peter 1:16, 20, 21; Proverbs 30:5. .
Mankind: : People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by a nature of disobedience toward God called “sin”. This nature separates people from God and causes many problems in life. Examine these Scriptures: Genesis 1:27; Psalms 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:3-6, 59: 1,2; Romans 3:23. .
Salvation: : Salvation is God’s free gift to us but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus we’re saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. Examine these Scriptures: Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1, 10:9,10. .
Eternal Security: : Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation is for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security. Examine these Scriptures: John 10:29; II Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10, 14; I Peter 1:3-5; Romans 3:20,28. .
Eternity: : People were created to exist forever. We will exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. Examine these Scriptures: John 3:16, 2:25; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15. .
