SPIRIT: DIVINE ASPECT

Everything belongs to God the Divine Eternal Being. God made everything out of nothing. We all were created in the image of God our Creator. We are children of God our Almighty Father and because of this, "You are awesome!"

Although we all have sinned. God still loves us. He sent Jesus Christ, his only Son, to teach us the true way to live, to save us from our sins, and to prove to us that Jesus is God.

Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended to heaven to send to us the Holy Spirit to guide us through out our lives. Grace is Godís loving presence and our transformation through it. Life is a shared process of becoming filled with his grace. Jesus created the church to help us become more united with God.

Creation is filled with lessons to help us learn all about these things. We learn about God from our hearts for he has written his law upon it. We learn about God from nature for his design is upon it. We learn about God from the Bible for it is the voice of God. We learn about the things of God from the study of theology because the Holy Spirit guides the church to be his successor and teacher of theology.

The proof that there is a God.

The experience of God within us.

The Divine work of being a disciple of God.
