What I Believe

The Bible is the infallible, inspired Word of God.  {2 Timothy 3:16}
God created the universe in 6, 24 hour days, and rested on the 7th - not from tiredness, but pleasure. {Genesis 1, 2}
All human being are created in the image of God. Adam and Eve, the first two people God created and originally put in the Garden of Eden, sinned against God and ate the fruit that God commanded them not to eat, and therefore all human beings are now separated from God. {Genesis 3}
Because of sin, man cannot come to God except through Jesus Christ. Jesus is the only way. {John 14:6}
We are all sinners and all of us fall short of the glory of God.  {Romans 3:23}
God always was, is, and always will be. {Deuteronomy 33:27, Isaiah 60:15, Exodus 15:18}
He is the one and only true God. {Isaiah 46:9}
God sent Jesus Christ to earth in human form. He was born to the Virgin Mary and her husband Joseph in the town of Bethlehem. {Luke 3}
Jesus Christ came to this earth approximately 2000 years ago in human form; was born and lived a perfectly sinless life, and then died on a wooden cross taking the sins of the world upon Himself; and therefore paying the penalty for our sins. {Romans 5:8, 1 Corinthians 15:3, Matthew 27}
Death is the penalty for sin. {Romans 6:23}
Jesus Christ is 100% God, 100% Man. {John 11:35, John 20:30, John 10:30, John 20:28, Hebrews 1:3, 1 Corinthians 12:3-4}
Those who believe that Christ paid for their sins by His death on the Cross will go to Heaven; those who do not must pay for their own sins by eternity in Hell. {Acts 16:31}
Salvation is offered to all, and each person must decide either to believe in Christ and therefore receive the gift or to forever reject Christ and therefore pay for their own sins by spending eternity in Hell. {Romans 5:18}
He died on the cross, was buried, and on the third day rose from the dead and was seen by many. {1 Corinthians 15:4, John 21:14, Matthew 25:46, John 6:40}
40 days after He rose again, He ascended to Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God. {Romans 8:34}
At the time appointed by God, which we do not know, Christ will come back to earth and judge all people in it. {Matthew 25:31, John 14:3, 1 Timothy 6:14}
