I believe that this world and the rest of the universe was created by God.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God and human, who died such that those things we did wrong will be forgiven. Jesus lives, as God made him rise from the dead. This can be a wonderfull source of inspiration for us - believe in Jesus Christ, and that he died for the things we did wrong, and our relationship with God is restored.

I believe that God speaks to us through the Holy Spirit. We can have in our daily lives a living relationship with God. God listens to our prayers.

I believe that hate and death will not have the last word. Our existence will not end after we have died, and there will come a time when this world will be recreated but in a perfect way.
