ruler of the universe. He exists eternally in three personalities, the

conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He is equal
with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless, perfect life and offered himself
as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by giving his life on
the cross. Three days after his death and burial he rose from the dead
to demonstrate his power over death and sin .He ascended to heaven after
