The Five Solas of Christianity
Content

1. Sola Scriptura: Scripture Alone [the supreme source of doctrine]

I will worship toward Your holy temple, And praise Your name For Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word above all Your name. Psalms 138:2

For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. 2 Peter 2:20

Now these things, brethren, I have figuratively transferred to myself and Apollos for your sakes, that you may learn in us not to think beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up on behalf of one against the other. 1 Corinthians 4:6

2. Sola Christo: Christ Alone [the author of salvation]

For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time 1 Timothy 2:5-6

[Christ] Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. Colossians 1:15-18

Wherefore he [Christ] is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:25

As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him Colossians 2:6

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I [Paul] am chief. 1 Timothy 1:15

For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time 1 Timothy 2:5-7

In [Jesus Christ] Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace Ephesians 1:7

3. Sola Gratia: Grace Alone [the only source of salvation]

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Ephesians 2:8

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed Romans 3:23-25

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, 1 Peter 1:10

4. Sola Fide: Faith Alone [the only means of salvation]

But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for "the just shall live by faith." Galatians 3:11

Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law. Romans 3:28

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ Romans 5:1

Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat [the Father] loveth him also that is begotten [born] of him. 1 John 5:1

5. Soli Deo Gloria: The Glory of God Alone [the only purpose of salvation]

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen. Romans 11:36

If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:11

Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and ho Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him."

Isaiah 43:7nor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen. Revelation 7:12

Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him." Isaiah 43:7
