 The Doctrinal Basis of the Fellowship shall be the fundamental truths of Christianity,
 including:

 (a)       The unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead.

 (b)       The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.

 (c)       The divine inspiration and entire trustworthiness of Holy Scripture, as originally
           given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

 (d)       The universal sinfulness and guilt of all men since the fall, rendering them subject
           to God’s wrath and condemnation.

 (e)       Redemption from the guilt, penalty, dominion and pollution of sin, solely through
 the       sacrificial death (as our Representative and Substitute) of the Lord Jesus Christ, the
           incarnate Son of God.

 (f)       The bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and His ascension to
 the       right hand of God the Father.

 (g)       The presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration.

 (h)       The justification of the sinner by the grace of God through faith alone.

 (i)       The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.

 (j)       The one Holy Universal Church which is the Body of Christ and to which all true
           believers belong.

 (k)       The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.


 I hereby subscribe wholeheartedly to the above principles of faith, the Doctrinal Basis of
 the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students
