All people are born into a disobedient (sinful) nature

God

God is eternal

God exists as three in one: the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit

Jesus

Jesus’ sacrificial death paid the penalty for our sin
Jesus was resurrected from the dead
Jesus ascended into heaven is seated at the right hand of the Father
Jesus will return one day to rid the world of evil forever

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit comes to live within the believer at the time of salvation
The Holy Spirit brings comfort to the believer
