that human beings are not the product of evolutionary development, but were created innocent; however, in their present fallen estate, human beings are entirely depraved, and enslaved in the service of sin.
that sin is a transgression of the Divine Law, and that human beings are subject to death and eternal damnation by reason of the guilt that attaches to sin.
that God in his infinite mercy, resolved to save mankind and that the divine Redeemer appeared in Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of the Virgin Mary and the Son of God.
that all who penitently accept Christ as the one and only Savior in sincere faith are justified in the sight of God and made heirs of salvation.
