Lost people matter to God and must matter to His church. Luke 19:10 John 3:16 Luke 5:31

Excellence honors God and inspires people. Colossians 3:23 Hebrews 10:24
The bible is inspired by God and declares His design and redemption plan for humanity. It was written by people under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is His perfect will and thus is without error.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God.He is completelyGod andcompletely man. He lived a sinless life and gave His life as a sacrifice for the sins of humanity. Three days after His death He rose from the grave and ascended into Heaven. He will return again to restore the world and reign forever as King.
Man chose to be away from God. Though created in His perfect image, man decided to follow his own will instead of God's will. This led to separation from God and essentially death.
Only Jesus can save us. No one can be saved by good works or achievements. Only through faith in Christ can we receive God's free gift of salvation. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to save you from your sins, and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord!
The Holy Spirit empowers us to live a life that honors God.The Holy Spirit is coequal to God and Jesus. He provides us with power for living, serving, witnessing, pleasing God, understanding truth, and guidance for every area of one's life. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift from God and is described as when the Holy Spirit infills a believer through the evidence of speaking in tongues as experienced on the Day of Pentecost in the Bible.
