There is one God who created everything, who loves us deeply, and who desires to have a relationship with all people.
The expression of God's love for us – the Son of God – whose life, death, and resurrection made it possible for us to have a relationship with God.
God with us. The Holy Spirit lives in all those who believe that Jesus was who He said He was and who follow Him. The Holy Spirit comforts, counsels, convicts, guides and points people toward God.
Not merely a piece of literature, but a major way God actively speaks to people – The Bible tells the story of God's relationship with people, how it was broken, and what God did to make it possible again. It teaches us how we can have a relationship with God and experience the fullness of life that follows.
We all want to feel loved and accepted. We look for all sorts of things to make us feel “ok” and too often find they leave us empty. What we all need is to have a relationship with the God who loves us.
Those who try to live like Jesus lived. The church isn't perfect. It needs the Holy Spirit to lead, guide, and correct it as it tries to be like Jesus. At it's best, the church is an example in the world of mercy, grace, generosity, love, servanthood, and devotion to God.
