The Pillars of the Reformation

Scripture alone is the only source of divine truth, the only norm of Christian doctrine and practice, and the only standard against which errorists are to be judged.

Grace alone merited by Christ in His vicarious satisfaction of divine justice is the cause of man’s full and free justification by God totally apart from the works of the Law.

Faith alone — confidence of the heart in the mercy of God which remits sins for Christ’s sake — is the only means of personally appropriating the gift of justification.
