Acts 5:3-4, II Corinthians 13:13, Hebrews 1:1-3, Revelation 1:4-6)

2. Jesus Christ is true God and true man.

atonement of men and he is true God and true man without sin.(Luke 1:30, 2:40, John 1:1-2, 1:18, 3:16, Philippians 2:5-8,
Hebrews 4:15)

3. All people are born with sin (Original Sin)
God created man in His own image without 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, 6:5, Psalm 14:1-3, 51:5, Jeremiah 17:9,

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.
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 Corinthians 5:21, Galatians 3:13, 6:15, Ephesians 1:7, Philippians 3:4-
9,Titus 3:5, James 1:18, I Peter 1:18-19, 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,
