TJN Beliefs

God – God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.  He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and are one God.  (Genesis 1:1,26,273:22Psalm 90:2Matthew 28:19I Peter 1:2II Corinthians 13:14)

Eternity – Man was created to exist forever.  He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God, through forgiveness and salvation.  When you die, you will either spend eternity in Heaven or Hell.  Eternal separation from God happens in Hell.  Eternal union with God occurs in Heaven.  (John 3:16I John 2:255:11-13Romans 6:23Revelation 20:15)

Jesus Christ – Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is co-equal with the Father.  Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross.  He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death.  He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  (Matthew 1:22-23Isaiah 9:6John 1:1-514:10-30Hebrews 4:14-15I Corinthians 15:3-4Romans 1:3-4Acts 1:9-11I Timothy 6:14-15Titus 2:13)

Salvation – Salvation is a gift from God to man.  Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works.  Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty.  Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.  (Romans 6:23Ephesians 2:8-9John 14:61:12Titus 3:5Galatians 3:26Romans 5:1)

The Holy Spirit – The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God.  He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ.  He also lives in every believer from the moment of salvation.  He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under His control daily.  (II Corinthians 3:17John 16:7-1314:16-17Acts 1:8I Corinthians 2:123:16Ephesians 1:13Galatians 5:25Ephesians 5:18)

The Bible – The Bible is God’s Word to all men.  It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.  (II Timothy 3:16-17II Peter 1:20-21II Timothy 1:13Psalm 119:105,160Psalm 12:6Proverbs 30:5)
