We Believe: There is a God. The one and only God, revealed to us in the Bible as triune (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). He is the creator of everything and revealed in the Bible’s account of creation the Lord states that humankind was created in His own image which generally speaking means that we are a representation of who God is and what He is like.
The Bible is clear that God desires to have a relationship with us and also desires for us to choose with our free will (given to us by God) to be in a worshipful relationship with Him. But every one of us chooses to put ourselves before the God who created us and deserves our worship and because of that choice we are separated from God.
But because God loves us immeasurably, He sent is Son, Jesus, to sacrifice Himself and die the death every one of us deserved and therefore, paid the debt we owed to God.
But then Christ rose from the dead because death could not contain Him. And so, through God’s loving act anyone of us has the choice to believe and receive the gift of Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection and become a child of God, in whom God, the Holy Spirit, lives in us and through us for God’s glory. Certainly, we will have many questions about God throughout our lives, but this does not surprise God; in fact, He anticipates them. And beyond giving us just the answers we want he gives us Himself and invites us to, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest…learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
