We believe in God, the Almighty, his son Jesus our lord, the Holy Spirit and the teaching in the Bible.

The Bible is what God gave us to help us figure Him out.
(2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 3:16)

One God exists eternally in three persons, described in the Bible as – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Matthew 28:19; John 14:16-26 & 16:7-15)

God made everything.
(Genesis 1:1-2:25)

We do things that take us away from God. He did something that brings us back.
(Isaiah 53:1-6; Matthew 1:21; John 3:16; Romans 5:8)

Jesus came to Earth and even though He is God, He limited Himself to being Human so that we could understand Him.
(Philippians 2:5-8; Luke 1:26-35; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Peter 2:21-24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-5; Acts 1:9-11)

We did stuff against God and there was no way we could pay for what we did, so Jesus died on the cross to pay for our crimes. If we accept Him as the Lord of our lives and our saviour and are baptized (immersed) in His Name we are saved from the punishment for our crimes.
(Hebrews 9:11-14 & 10:10-13; 1 Peter 3:18,21; Galatians 3:13-14; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:38, 22:16; Romans 6:1-7)

Being saved from Hell when you die is a gift from God. This is called salvation, like being born twice. It is a new start.
(1 John 1:8-10 & 3:9; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 2:8-9)

We want to get better at loving God and other people too. So God planted Himself in us to help us do this.
(Ephesians 4:11-16; 1 Corinthians 14:20; Colossians 1:9-12 & 3:12-17)

The Holy Spirit is simply God living in you. He lives in Christians to help them live the best life they can.
(John 14:26 & 16:8-15; Romans 8:9 & 8:26-27; John 14:23; Acts 2:38; 1 Corinthians 12:13)
