I believe that God created humans as part of His universe. I believe that Jesus Christ lived, died, and rose again to redeem sinful humanity. I believe that the Lord is revealed to us through the Bible. I believe that the Lord has provided instructions to His people on the best way to live in this world, and these instructions are found in the Bible. I believe that the Lord has given all humans the opportunity to live in relationship to Him, if we choose.
