  • In the Bible as the written Word of God, our only authority & guide (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; Ps. 119:105)
  • In the deity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Mt. 16:16; Jn. 20:28)
  • In the virgin birth of Jesus Christ (Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 1:35)
  • In the death of Christ to save us from our sins (1 Cor. 15:3; 1 Pet. 3:18)
