The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self‐existent, self‐revealed “I AM,” and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, by simultaneously existing as three separate persons; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
His Virgin Birth (Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:26‐38)
His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26, I Peter 2:22)
His substitutionary work on the cross (1 Cor. 15:3, II Cor. 5:21)
His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38)
His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matt. 28:6, Luke 24:39, I Cor. 15:4)
His exaltation to the right hand of God (Acts 1:9, 11; 2:33; Phil. 2:9, Heb. 1:3)
The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of eternal life.
This experience may be distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the New Birth.
