    Realizing, that although all of us who are born again, have the exact same faith in Christ, we are each different, with different convictions and ideas about what is important.

    With that in mind, I would like to know(from each of you), what you think are the top 5 fundamental doctrines of our faith.
    --------------------------------------------------
    Here are mine..........

    (1) The Deity of Christ,
    (2) The Virgin Birth of Christ
    (3) The Substitutionary death of Christ
    (4) The Resurrection of Christ
    (5) The Return of Christ




    Thank you for participating.

    I agree with all of your most important doctrines but there are many more.
    (1) His great commission
    (2) His wonderful Grace to save a wretch like me
    (3) His promises if we will only believe
    (4) His direction of our foot steps
    (5) His blessings even though we are not deserving

    1. The absolute sovereignty of God
    3. The lordship of Jesus Christ
    4. A constant personal relationship with Christ through His inerrant word
    5. The resurrection and establishment of His kingdom on earth; the church.

    Without the absolute sovereignty of God all other doctrines fall short of divine approval.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Well put. I'll expand a bit

    Doctrine of Scripture is foundational.
    Sovreignty of God - After all, if God is not sovreign, He is not God.
    Soteriology, particularly redemption and salvation (substitutionary atonment). Nuff said
    Doctrine of man - man really is fallen and needs salvation.
    Pneumatology - the real work of the Holy Spirit
