The Person Of God, Jesus Christ And The Holy Spirit
God: I believe God created the heavens and the earth in 6 literal days (Exodus 20:11). I believe that God is the standard of righteousness, and there is no darkness in Him at all. God revealed His name to Moses in Exodus 3:14-15, as Yahweh, I Am Who I Am. That phrase means that Yahweh always existed without having a beginning.
Jesus Christ: I believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin named Mary. Jesus was born without sin and lived His life on earth without sinning even once. I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for the sins of the world, and on the third day, He rose from the grave, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
The Holy Spirit: I believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who lives in the hearts of those who have given their lives through faith in Jesus Christ. I also believe that the Holy Spirit is the one who convicts the world of sin and reveals Jesus Christ to those who respond to His conviction for their salvation. The Holy Spirit is the one who gives God’s children knowledge of God’s Word.
The Trinity: I believe that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are all the same God. God exists as three persons, but all three are one God.

I believe in a Pre-Tribulation rapture: This means that before the Great Tribulation comes, Jesus Christ will come down from heaven, staying up in the clouds, and with the trumpet call, He will send out His angels to bring all believers to meet Him. He will rescue us from the wrath of God that will come upon the whole earth (Romans 1:18), which will last seven years (Daniel 9:27). You can read about the rapture in 1Thessalonians 1:10; 1Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 3:10.

The Inerrancy Of Scripture
I believe that the Word of God is without error (1 Peter 1:23-25; Matthew 5:18; John 10:35; Psalm 12:6).
Satan And Demons
I believe Satan is an actual enemy, a fallen angel who rebelled against God some time at the beginning or before creation. I also believe that Satan deceived one-third (Revelation 12:4) of the angels in heaven who are now called demons (Revelation 12:7; Luke 11:14-20).
I believe that Satan is the one who deceived Eve to eat the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which God said not to eat. After Eve’s deception to eat the fruit, she gave it to her husband, Adam, who ate it. Both died immediately spiritually but physically at a much slower rate. God created them to live forever, but after disobeying the Lord, they started to die, and God commanded them to leave the garden of Eden.
The Origin Of Sin
I believe that every human being who is born is born in sin (Psalm 51:5). We receive the sin of Adam through our parents. Adam gave his sins to his children, which were transferred on to us (Romans 5:12).
I believe in a literal hell that will last forever and ever with no way out (Revelation 14:9-11).
I also believe in a literal heaven where God lives, and those who have Jesus in their hearts will go after death (2 Corinthians 5:8; Revelation 6:9-10).
