Five Solas of the Reformation

Sola Scriptura: scripture alone.
The Bible is the only inspired word of God. It's understandable, and self-interpreting.

Sola Fide: by faith alone.
Justification (being declared right with God) is by faith alone, not good works.

Sola Gratia: by grace alone.Salvation comes by His grace- unmerited favor- only God acts to save the sinner.

Solus Christus: Christ Alone
Christ is the only mediator between God and man, there is salvation in no other.

Soli Deo Gloria: the glory goes to God alone
All glory is due to Him.
