3. All people are born with sin (Original Sin)
God created man in His own image with out sin. However, the first man Adam and first woman Eve were
deceived by Satan and committed sin, therefore all people became sinful from birth.(Genesis 1:26, 2:17, 6:

ofthe Farther God. (John 1:29, 3:16, Romans 3:25-26, II Corinthians 5:14, Hebrews10:5-14, I Peter 3:18).
And Jesus Christ resurrected with physical body. (John20:20, Philippians 3:20-21)

5. Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation and by faith alone be saved. For the payment of sin is death
and Jesus Christ who is true God and true man is only one can accomplished the atonement death for
substitute of men's sin.(Leviticus 17:11, Isaiah 64:6, Matthew 26:28, John 3:7-18, Romans 5:6-9, 6:23,II

-19, 1:23) And people be saved (received eternal life) only by believing in Jesus Christ's atonement death
and his resurrection. (John 1:12, 3:16-18, 3:36, 5:24, 6:29, Acts 13:39, 16:31, Romans1:16-17, 3:22, 3:26,
4:5, 10:4, 10:9, I Corinthians 15:1-5, Galatians 3:22)

6. Returnof Jesus Christ.
According to Bible prophecy, Jesus Christ will return to midair and lift believers (Church) to heaven
(Rapture). (John 14:1-3, I Corinthians 15:51-52, Philippians 3:20, I Thessalonians4:13-18, Titus 2:11-14).
And after this, there will be great tribulation on earth and Jesus Christ will return to ground and the
millennium Kingdom will begin. (Deuteronomy 30:1-10, Isaiah 11:9, Ezekiel 37:21-28, Matthew 24:15-25,
46, Acts 15:16-17, Romans 8:19-23, 11:25-27, I Timothy 4:1-3, II Timothy 3:1-5,Revelation 20:1-3)

Spirit.Therefore the whole Bible is written without error in the original manuscript. (Mark 12:26, 36, 13:
11, Luke 24:27, John 5:39, Acts 1:16, 17:2-3, 18:28, IITimothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21).
