The Lord God is one God, the Holy Triune God; revealed in the scriptures as God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit; from eternity past to eternity future.
The Bible is God breathed, infallible and inerrant. It is the final authority in all matters of doctrine and practice, revealed to the saints by the Holy Spirit.
All have sinned and have fallen short of God's standards. The just penalty for sin is the wrath of a Holy God resulting in eternal separation from Him.
God, in love and mercy, provided the perfect sacrifice to redeem mankind back into fellowship with Himself. That sacrifice was Jesus Christ, His Son. Born to the virgin Mary, Jesus lived a perfect sinless life, in order that He might bear man's sin in His body on the cruel cross. There on the cross, the Son of God, who is Life, gave up His life that He might pay the full penalty for sin.
On the third day, He rose bodily from the dead, conquering sin, Satan and death once and for all, thereby providing for His elect, the gift of eternal life.
This gift of eternal life is offered freely to all, but belongs only to those who repent and believe in Him. There is no other way by which man can escape the penalty for sin.
The Holy Spirit permanently indwells all believers, at conversion, and provides them with guidance, comfort, discernment and assurance of salvation.
Christ is the Head of the Church and all believers are ultimately responsible to Him.
If you have any questions about this statement, I would be glad to discuss them with you.
