About Toronto Church
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He exists in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
These three are eternal, simultaneous, co-equal persons and are one God.

Jesus Christ is the only Son of God and co-equal with the Father. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born to a virgin, lived a sinless human life, and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He rose from the dead after three days; he ascended to God's side and will return again to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

About the Bible
The Bible is God's Word to all people. It was written by human authors under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Old and New Testaments are both the Word of God and fully inspired to be interpreted according to their context and purpose.
2 Timothy 1:13, 3:16 ; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalms 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5; Romans 15:4; James 1:22
Salvation is a free gift from God to humanity. Only by believing in Jesus Christ can we be saved. Eternal life became ours the moment Jesus rose from the dead; received in the process of believing, confessing, repenting, and being baptized into Jesus Christ. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God.
