Holy Bible :
1. It is all-sufficient Word of God revealed to man ( 2 Tim 3:16).
2. It has dual authorship. Which means, the Holy Spirit superintended the human authors to record the Holy Scriptures (2 Peter 1:20-21).
3. It is God-Breathed (2 Tim 3:16), objective revelation (1 Thess. 2:13), absolutely inerrant in the original documents(John 16:12-13; 17:17) so it is the rule of faith and practice.
4. God uses the Scripture to draw people and regenerate – (James 1:18, John 6:45)
5. The word of God has one true interpretation, which is understood by literal, grammatical-historical interpretation under the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit (John 7:17; 1 Cor 2:7-15;1 John 2:20).
6. The scripture should be considered as the very words of God, and should be highly revered, meditated, obeyed, and delighted upon (Is. 66:2; Ps. 1:2; 1 Thess 2:13).
1. There is one living and true God (Deut 6:4).
2. He is perfect in all His ways (Matt 5:48), absolutely holy (Lev. 19:2) and never approves sin (Hab. 1:13; James 1:13).
3. He is in heaven, He is all-powerful, all-knowing, Sovereign over everything (Ps. 135:6; 115:3).
4. He exists in three persons : Father, Son, Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14) – Co-equal in all attributes, co-existing eternally, and equally deserving worship and obedience (John 17:5).
God the Father:
1. He is the First Person of the Trinity, the creator and the sustainer of the universe (Gen 1:1-31; Ps. 104)
2. He is sovereign over His creation (Ps. 103:19)
3. As creator He is Father of all creation (Eph. 4:6), but He is Spiritual Father only to the Believers (Matt 6:31-32).
4. He elects (Eph 1:4-6) and draws people from the world for salvation (John 6:44) and gives them to the Son (John 6:37).
5. He saves from sins all those who humbly repent and come to Him (Gal 4:4-5; 2 Ch. 7:14).
God the Son:
1. He is the second Person of the Trinity. He possesses all the divine attributes. He is co-equal, co-eternal with the Father (John 10:30; John 14:9) and deserves our worship (2 Peter 3:18; Rev. 5:12-13)
2. God the Father created the universe through His Son, Jesus Christ (John 1:3; Heb 1:2; Col. 1:15-17)
3. God the Son became Man in His incarnation. He surrendered only the prerogatives of deity but not His divine essence, and became man and so He is the God-man (Phil 2:5-8; Col. 2:9). The purpose of incarnation is to reveal God to man, and to be the substitute for man in accomplishing redemption. He accomplished redemption through His sacrificial, substitutionary, propitiatory, death on the Cross (2 Cor 5:21; Rom 5:8).
4. Through Faith in the redemptive sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ, a sinner is forgiven from sins, justified (Rom 3:24-25) and adopted into the family of God (Gal 4:6). A repented sinner will be saved from the penalty of sin, power of sin, and one day from the presence of sin (1 Peter 2:24; 3:18).
5. The physical resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day of burial confirms His deity (Matt 28:6; Rom. 8:34), our justification(Rom 4:25), and our future resurrection (1 Cor 15:20-23). He is alive to save us (Heb 7:25).
6. Jesus Christ has the authority to Judge (John 5:22-23). He will judge believers (1 Cor. 3:10-15; 2 Cor 5:10), unbelievers at the Great white Throne (Rev 20:11-15), and living inhabitants of the earth at His glorious return (Matt. 25: 31-46).
7. He is the only Mediator between God and Man (1 Tim. 2:5), He alone is the head of His body, the Church (Eph 1:22; Col 1:18) and the coming universal King (Is 9:6; Luke 1:31-33).
God the Holy Spirit
1. God the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He possesses all the divine attributes and He is co-equal, co-eternal with the Father and the Son (Acts 5:3,4; Matt 28:19).
2. He executes the will of God in mankind. (John 3:5-7)
3. The Holy Spirit was promised by Christ to the believers (John 14:16). He came from the Father on the day of Pentecost to initiate and build the body of Christ (Eph. 2:22). He convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of Judgement (John 16:8). He transforms believers into the image of Christ(Rom 8:29). He glorifies Christ (John 16:14).
4. Holy Spirit regenerates, and baptizing all believers into body of Christ (1 Cor. 12:13).
5. Holy Spirit indwells in a believer from the moment of salvation and will be with the believer forever (Rom. 8:9-11; John 14:16). The Holy Spirit builds up the believers in Holiness and in Faith (2 Cor. 3:18).
6.Holy Spirit bestows Spiritual Gifts for the benefit of the body of Christ (1 Cor 12:7). Sign gifts are used in the beginning of days of the church for authenticating the Apostles (2 Cor. 12:12). They were never intended to be characteristics of the lives of believers. Tongues are sign for unbelievers and not for believers (1 Cor. 14:22).
