    • Identify the Current Issue

    • Discover the Eternal Principles

Teaching point one: All people have some awareness and knowledge of God, even if theyíve never heard the gospel or had access to the Bible.
Teaching point two: It is Godís desire that all people come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Teaching point three: Jesus is Godís only Savior and mediator, Godís one provision for our salvation.
Teaching point four: Those who believe in the gospel will be saved; those who reject the gospel will not.
Teaching point five: There are only two pathsóone leads to eternal salvation, the other to eternal damnation. But judgment is Godís prerogative, and we Christians may be surprised at some of the results of his judgment.
Teaching point six: God honors those who sincerely fear and seek him and do what is right and acceptable in Godís eyes.
