The Fundamentals

The term, 'fundamentalism,' has become archaic and is now rarely used. What most Conservative Protestant, evangelical Christians believe, however, usually agrees with what we call "The Fundamentals," a name taken from a 4-volume set of books published in 1917, called "The Fundamentals," edited by R.A. Torrey.

    "It is generally understood that the fundamentals of the Christian faith include the inspiration and thus the divine authority of the Bible; the deity, virgin birth, blood atonement, bodily resurrection, personal second coming of Christ; the fallen, lost condition of all mankind, salvation by repentance and faith, grace without works; eternal doom in Hell of the unconverted and eternal blessedness of the saved in Heaven."

    - John R. Rice, "I Am a Fundamentalist"
