trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and
(iii) The universal sinfulness and guiltiness of the human race, making
man the subject of God’s wrath and condemnation.

sole and all sufficient ground of redemption from guilt and the power
sin and from its eternal consequences.

faith in Jesus Christ crucified, risen from the dead and ascended into
