God of the Old and New Covenant
The triune Godhead: Father, Son, & Holy Spirits and they are one representing unity in diversity. (John 14:1 and 9 and 26, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Ephesians 3:3)

The Bible is the revealed Word of God and that Jesus was, and is, the exact representation of God’s being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. (see John 14:9, 2 Peter 1:16-21, Colossians 1:15, Galatians 1:12, Hebrews 1:3)
Jesus is the only way to the Father. (John 4:25-26, John 14:6, Ephesians 2:18, 3:12, 2 Corinthians 5:19)

He proved He was God by rising from the grave, defeating all sin and death just as the prophets foretold. (Galatians 1:1, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, 1 John 1:1-4, 2 Peter 1)

19We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Jesus invites us all to follow Him (TRACE) and receive eternal life! How? By believing in and placing our trust completely in His sacrifice for us, confessing our sins and repenting of our sinful ways, we walk obediently in the new life He gave us, not by sight, but by faith! (John 14:21, 1 John 1:5, Colossians 1:27, 1 John 2:25, 2 Peter 3:8-10, 2 Corinthians 5:7)
