Article VII – Original Sin

We believe man was originally made and created by God, without sin.1  That sin entered into the world when Adam ate, in disobedience to God, of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.2  That by Adam’s transgression, all men were made sinners and condemned to die.3
