2.) We believe that there is only one God eternally existent in three persons (trinity)-God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost. (Ephesians 4:5-6, Gen. 1:26, Matthew 3:16-17)

i. God love us. (John 3:16)

3.) We believe in the deity of Christ. (John 1: 1-4, John 10:30, Hebrews 1:1-5)

i. He was born of a virgin. (Matthew 1:18-25, Luke 1:30-35)
