The Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred physical and spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a depraved sinful nature, and in the case of these who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word, and deed.  Romans 5:12, 19; Ephesians 2:1-6; Genesis 1:27; Isaiah 53:6; Romans 1:20; Genesis 1:31; 3:6-24
