  • 33.There is one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. Man is sinful and therefore separated from God, who is holy and perfect. Jesus Christ paid the eternal penalties for our sin through His death on the cross. Jesus Christ also resurrected bodily and ascended into heaven and will return one day to fulfill His kingdom. Only through Jesus Christ and the grace of His provision of salvation, may we be saved from eternal punishment, enter into God’s family and receive eternal life. The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible and authoritative Word of God and the truth for Christian faith and practice. Stoa Statement of Faith
