then permission is granted free of charge if you are in full agreement with the following two conditions (or for secular usage of images, you must not be in contradiction to the following two conditions (whether in word or spirit)):
1) I agree with the following Statement of Faith:
–I believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, that it is inerrant and the final authority for life, faith and doctrine. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; John 17:17)
–I believe in one God, Creator of all things, who eternally exists in three equal Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1; John 1:1-14; John 10:30; 1 Corinthians 2:10-12; Acts 5:3-4)
–I believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, his virgin birth, his sinless life, his atoning death, his bodily resurrection, his ascension to the right hand of the Father and his personal return in power and glory. I believe that Jesus alone is the mediator between God and man. (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-35; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Corinthians 15:3; 1 Peter 2:24; Romans 3:25; Luke 24; Mark 16:19; Matthew 24:30; 1 Timothy 2:5)
–I believe that all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are therefore under condemnation. I believe man is born with a sin nature, separated from God, and is totally incapable of redeeming himself. (Romans 3:9-20, 23; John 3:36; Romans 5:12; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-12)
–I believe that Jesus Christ came to the earth to be a substitutionary sacrifice for man, that he died for our sins, was raised to life for our justification and that apart from him there is no salvation. (Romans 4:25; 1 Corinthians 15:1-6; Romans 3:21-28; Acts 4:12)
–I believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus and his atoning sacrifice alone. I believe that good works are the outward evidence of genuine saving faith. (Ephesians 2:8-20; Romans 3:28; 1 John 3:7-10; James 2:14-26)
–I believe in the personal, literal, and bodily resurrection of both the believer and the unbeliever, the eternal punishment of the unbeliever and the eternal joy of the believer. (John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:4-6, 11-15; Revelation 21:1-27)
