Four Fundamentals of Faith
1) A NEED
Men and women come to Christ because they need Christ! “The well have NO NEED…” (Matthew 9:11-13)
2) THE WORD
Faith’s one foundation is the Word of God. We have no reason to believe anything except what God hath said. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17)
The sole object of saving faith is Christ, (Isaiah 45:22; Hebrews 12:2) our LORD. He, of God, is made unto us all things that we need. We believe, look, trust, and rest in HIM (Colossians 2:9-10).
Both the will to believe and the power to believe are the gifts of God, “not of works” (Ephesians 1:19; Ephesians 2:8-9).
