the risen Lord of all
- The authority of the bible in what to believe and how to live.
God is a generous God who reveals himself to us rather than leaving us in the dark to find our way to him. In the bible, he reveals who he is and how he has reached out to us in the crucified and risen Lord Jesus Christ.
- The existence of one God, in three persons.
God, the Father, creator and supreme ruler of the world. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, Saviour of the world and the Lord of heaven and earth. The Holy Spirit who convicts people of sin, points them to Jesus and enables them to be holy.
- Jesus’ death and resurrection as the central actions of God in the world.
He died on the cross as a penalty for our sin, substituting himself in our place so that we could be forgiven for our sin and escape God’s judgment. He rose powerfully to new life from the dead. He ascended to heaven as the Lord of all.
