Mankind: We believe that God created mankind in His image for relationship. That relationship was broken by a willful act of disobedience; resulting in a broken trust that alienated man from God. God promised to restore the potential for relationship with all mankind through a redemptive act of God’s love. God fulfilled his promise through the life, death and resurrection of his son, Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:26; Genesis 3; John 3:16)
