Summary: Sound doctrine is part of the true Church.
Every Church should be of sound doctrine
1. The Salvation for sinners.
1 Tim.1: 15This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
2. The Inspiration of the Scriptures
2nd Tim.3: 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
3. The incarnation of Christ
1st Tim. 3: 16All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
4. The condition of the last days
1st Tim. 4: Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2nd Tim .3: 1This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come
5. Intercession of Christ
1st Tim.2: 1I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
6. The qualifications of overseers
1st Tim. 3: 1This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
2A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
3Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
4One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
5(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)
6Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
7Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
And any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine
1st Tim. 1: 10For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine
