The third Principle. Concerning redemption by Christ.

The fift Principle: Faith commeth by hearing, and is strengthned by the Word and Prayer.
The sixt Principle: All men shall rise with their bodies to judgement, the godly shall inherit the kingdome of Heaven, but repro∣bates and unbeleevers shall bee cast into hell fire with the Devill and his angels.
