IV. The Bible

The Bible is the Gospel, which is the power of God for our salvation.
Man is a created being.
Man has great worth.
Man is entrusted with great responsibility.
Man is a sinner by nature and by choice.
Salvation meets man’s need.
Salvation is the result of God’s love.
Salvation is conditional.
Salvation may be said to be in three stages (regeneration, sanctification, and glorification).
VII. Regeneration (New Birth)
The new birth is an act of God.
The new birth is verified by the Holy Spirit.
The new birth enables us to live righteously.
VIII. Sanctification (Holiness)
Entire sanctification is a second, definite work of God’s grace.
All holiness involves separation from sin to God.
Holiness enables us to live above sin.
IX. Glorification (Our Bodies Becoming Perfect At Christ’s Second Coming)
Glorification is the last act of redeeming grace.
Glorification involves a physical change.
Glorification is final salvation.
Glorification, as final salvation, is conditioned on us remaining true to God.
