Choose one of the following doctrines and give us a brief definition and explanation of the subject: God, salvation, the Holy Spirit, or the Bible.

Doctrine of Salvation:
Christ died according to the Scriptures, was buried, and rose on the third day. Salvation is from our Creator (God) who created man in His image. Man is sinful because of the fall in the Garden of Eden. God cannot look upon man’s sin. We are not righteous; no, not one. To take care of this sin and broken relationship between Man and God, God the Father finished His work by sending His Son Jesus as the perfect sacrifice on the cross for man’s sin because He loves us.

We are only saved in Christ alone, through faith alone, and by grace alone.
