*God exists and He made me.
*My sin is against Him, and He will hold me accountable for it unless I turn to Him for salvation.
*The way of the transgressor is hard.
*There is only one way of salvation, not many.
*Without Him, I can do nothing.
*He loves me and skillfully orders my ways for my ultimate good and His ultimate glory.
*His Word is the only trustworthy account of reality.
*He has promised His grace for every trial and challenge of life.
