…and that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man. That God created Man in His own image; that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of death; physical and spiritual; and that all human beings inherit a sinful nature which issues in actual transgression involving personal guilt. Jesus then died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice, according to the Scriptures, and that all who believe and trust in Him are justified and have been redeemed on the ground of His shed blood. In the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate and that he will one day return. In the resurrection, both the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed, and the eternal banishment from God of those who have rejected the offer.
