Sound Doctrine

1 Timothy 4:6

1 Timothy 1:3,10

1 Timothy 4:13:16

I.  Scripture as the Supreme Rule

II.  All Men are Sinners

• Man was created by God (in His own image)

•  Man disobeyed God and lost his original righteousness and became sinful and corrupt.

•  Sin separates man from God.  Thus the former relationship with God is broken.

Romans 3:9-12

Ephesians 2:1-3

III.  God Graciously Offers Salvation

Romans 5:2-8

1  Corinthians 15:12-19

Resurrection is the proof of an acceptable sacrifice.

IV.  Justification by Faith

Redemption and Reconciliation to God rests solely on the merits of Jesus.

John 3:16

3 Bases of Assurance

·      Promise of God – Hebrews 6:13ff

·      Obedient Life – 1 John 2:3

·      Spirit Bearing Witness with our Spirit – Romans 8

V.  Work of Holy Spirit

When we repent – two things happen:

•          Sin Paid for (Propitiation) – Sin Removed (Expiation)

•          Spirit – given individually – Helper – Pledge

Continuing work of Holy Spirit is Sanctification.

·      Convicts us of Sin

·      Draws us to Christ

·      Sanctifies our Hearts

·      Love for Brethren

·      Illuminates God’s Word

·      Teaches us to Pray
