Basic truths of Christianity...

must form the foundation of your faith.

What above all do you need for this life and the life of the world to come?

I need to know that God exists, (1) that He has made Himself and this truth known, (2) and that although in myself I am a hopeless sinner--guilty, corrupt, and disobedient (3)--He will forgive, renew, and protect me as I trust in the perfect obedience, atoning death, and life-giving resurrection of Jesus Christ.(4)

(1) John 17:3, Hebrews 11:6
(2) Psalm 19:1-3, 7
(3) Romans 3:10-11
(4) Romans 3:22-25

Start there.
