In order to find your true identity you have to open the ultimate Truth, God's Word.

3:16, 17; 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14). In the Nicene Creed, it also states that the Father and Son are together worshiped and my interpretation is that the Holy Spirit is a way of connecting with the Father and Son while they are all 3 in one. Later on they state that the Father is the creator of heaven and of earth, The Lord Jesus Christ, is eternal and only begotten Son of the Father that he is true God and true man.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”. These are the famous first words of the Bible and the basis for the Christian belief of creationism. Christians also believe that Jesus is the Messiah and that while He was here on earth, he taught many lessons on how to live life in a way that is pleasing to God.

When observing human creation and nature, there are two main conflicting views, the Hebrew creation story portrayed in Genesis and the Babylonian myth of Enuma Elish. While the creation story of Genesis and the story of Enuma Elish may have some similarities, they mainly differ in their views of human nature. Heidel belittles resemblance within the stories though with the claim, “Add to this the doctrine that man was created in the image of a holy and righteous God, to be the lord of the earth, the air, and the sea, and …that make all similarities shrink into utter insignificance” (Heidel 140).
Overall, I learned that the first I believe statement symbolizes that, there is one God and he is the king of the whole world of all things.

Christianity stands on the idea that Jesus is the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; that his life on earth, his crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension into heaven are proof of God 's love for humanity and God 's forgiveness of human sins; and that by faith in Jesus one may attain salvation and eternal life. This teaching is embodied in the Bible, specifically in the New Testament, but Christians accept also the Old Testament as sacred and authoritative Scripture. Christians is a monotheistic religion, meaning they only believe in one god. Christian believe that we are all born sinners due to Adam and Eve, but we can all reach salvation by faith in God and good works. In the

The relationship between these two people can be quite controversial because the story implies that man is superior to woman. It is somewhat implied because God made Eve out of one of Adam’s ribs. Genesis 2:18 states, “Then the Lord God said, it is not good that the man should be alone, I will make a helper fit for him” (English Standard Version).
