one God, who exists in three Persons—the Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit. He is loving, holy, and just.

is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like him in
character. He is the supreme object of God’s creation.
Although man has tremendous potential for good, he is marred
by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin." This
attitude separates man from God.
1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1, 2
Jesus Christ is both God and Man. He was conceived by the
Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless
life, took all our sins upon Himself, died, and rose again.
Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our
High Priest and Mediator.
1:22, 23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14,
15; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Romans 1:3, 4; Acts 1:9-11; 1

salvation is the gift of God to man. This gift is effected
by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and it results in
works pleasing to God.
6:23; Ephesians 2:8, 9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5;
Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1
by immersion symbolizes the death, burial, and resurrection
of Jesus and is your public declaration that you have
accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. Baptism does
not save you, but shows the world that you have already been
saved. And while baptism is not required for salvation, it
is a biblical command and demonstrates your love and
obedience to Christ.
2:12; Acts 2:41; Ephesians 2: 8-9; Matthew 28:19-20

Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25;

remembrance of Him.
