Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is co-equal with the Father, God. Jesus lived a life without sin as a human and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people. He died on a cross and arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will one day return again to earth to reign as the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God, Jesus Christ. The Spirit is present in the world to make all mankind aware of the need for Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit also lives within every person from the moment of salvation. He provides the believer with the power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance. The Spirit gives all believers a spiritual gift when they are saved by grace. As believers, we seek to live under His guidance daily, submitting ourselves and our will to His.
The bible is God’s word to us. The authors were human but under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth and wisdom for Christian beliefs and standards for living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error. No matter the language, dialect, translation, or version, the interpretation of God’s word can and should be read and received within the guidance of the Holy Spirit and while seeking God’s heart.
