Solus Christus: Christ Alone
Christ alone does all the work for our salvation on the cross.

We receive what Christ has done not because of something we do, but because of who we trust.
Sola Scriptura: Scripture Alone
We know all this not because we are really smart, but because God has revealed it to us.
Sola Gratia: Grace Alone
Christ gives us His work not because we are deserving, but because He is loving.
Soli Deo Gloria: To God’s Glory Alone
Because of all that God has done for us, we don’t live for ourselves, but for Him.

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?"

They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:13-16
