I believe that God is three in One, and is revealed to us as the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. I believe in the deity of Jesus Christ and that He is God's only begotten Son who came in the flesh (1 John 4:2, "Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God), died for us, rose again, to bring us into right relationship with God the Father and to give us eternal life through faith and confession in Him as described in John 1:1 & 14 and Romans 10:9-10 which says, 'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth...If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved."
