ABOUT STREET REACH Statement of Faith
 About God God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe and is all-powerful, all-loving, and all-wise. He eternally exists in three persons-the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit-each with distinct personal attributes but without division of nature. These three are co-equal and are one God. About Jesus Christ Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father, meaning He is wholly God and wholly man. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life, and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. About the Holy Spirit The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son. He is present in the world to make people aware of their sins and their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts upon salvation to be used in service to the church and to bring God glory. As Christians, we daily seen to live under His control. About the Bible The Bible, both the old and new testaments, is God's Word to us. It is written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any error. About Human Beings People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God's creation. Humans were created innocent and pure, in perfect fellowship with God; however, that fellowship was broken through the sin of Adam. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates people from God and causes may problems in life; therefore, all humans are in need of forgiveness and redemption. About Salvation Salvation is God's free gift to all people, but we must accept it. We can never make up for out sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his or her life by faith. About Eternal Salvation Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Chris, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you are genuinely saved, you cannot lose it. Salvation in maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security. About Eternity People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally united with Him is Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places for eternal existence.
