We believe in the Trinity: the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit, as one.
God is peace, grace, love, and mercy. He loves us at our best and our worst. It is comforting to know that He already knows our best and our worst and He loves us anyways! We are so undeserving of his love, grace, and mercy, but "while we were sinners, Christ died for us" [Romans 5:8]. Isn't that amazing? Still can't fathom or understand, but "by His wounds we are healed" [Isaiah 53:5; see rest below].
We believe in the one true God, who sent His son, Jesus, to earth as a man while still being fully God. Jesus was sent to the earth to be our sacrifice for our sin, even though He did nothing wrong. Ever. He was sinless. He died on the cross so we wouldn't have to. There is no greater love than this!
As Christians, we believe this. God sent His perfect son to die on the cross, and that He (as in Jesus) rose again on the 3rd day. We have strength in this fact: Jesus conquered death in order to give us eternal life if we believe in Him!
And Jesus Christ our Lord was shown to be the Son of God when God powerfully raised him from the dead by means of the Holy Spirit. Through Christ, God has given us the privilege and authority to tell Gentiles everywhere what God has done for them, so that they will believe and obey him, bringing glory to his name.
***This scripture below comes from the Old Testament, hundreds and hundreds of years before Christ was born and crucified: Isaiah 53:4-12
4 Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed and afflicted,
yet he did not open his mouth;
he was led like a lamb to the slaughter,
and as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
so he did not open his mouth.
8 By oppression[a] and judgment he was taken away.
Yet who of his generation protested?
For he was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people he was punished.[b]
9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked,
and with the rich in his death,
though he had done no violence,
nor was any deceit in his mouth.
10 Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the LORD makes[c] his life an offering for sin,
he will see his offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.
11 After he has suffered,
he will see the light of life[d] and be satisfied[e];
by his knowledge[f] my righteous servant will justify many,
and he will bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,[g]
and he will divide the spoils with the strong,[h]
because he poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For he bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
