The Bible is the inspired Word of God, a revelation from God to men, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason
(2 Tim. 3:15, 17; 1 Pet. 1:23-25; Heb. 4:12).
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent, self-revealed "I AM," and has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association, by simultaneously existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Deut. 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isa. 43:10, 11; Matt. 28:19).
Man was created good and upright, for God said, "Let us make man in our image and after our likeness." But man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God
(Gen. 1:26-31; Gen. 3:17; Ro. 5:12-21).
a) Conditions of Salvation
The Grace of God, which brings salvation, has appeared to all men, through the preaching of repentance toward God and through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; man is saved by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, and being justified by grace, has become heir of God according to the hope of eternal life
(Titus 2:11; 3:5-7; Ro. 10:13-15; Luke 24:47).
b) Evidences of Salvation
The inward evidence to the believer of his salvation is the direct witness of the Holy Spirit
The outward evidence to all men is a life of holiness
(1 Thess. 4:7, 2 Tim.1:9)
