God is our Creator who wants to have a deep and rich relationship with us. He exists in three personalities: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.(Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14)
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus came and lived among us to show us how to live and relate to God. He was crucified on a cross but arose from the dead after three days to redeem all of creation.(Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)
The Holy Spirit is a gift; God’s supernatural presence and power in us. The Spirit inspires, enables and leads us.(II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18)
The Bible is a collection of books written and compiled by human authors, who were inspired by God, which includes the teachings of Jesus. It is the source of grace, truth and wisdom for followers of Jesus.(II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21; II Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160; Psalm 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)
Baptism is a sacred and symbolic act of your relationship with God. The scriptures reveal to us that followers of Jesus used this practice to identify themselves with his death and burial. Paul the Apostle taught that baptism is symbolic of someone dying to him or herself, being buried with Christ, and becoming anew creation. Baptism is not a prerequisite to relationship with Jesus but rather a commitment to living it out. Ephesians 2:8-9, Luke 23:39-43, Matthew 28:19- 20 andActs 2:41 are few of the references in the bible for baptism.
