On God, Man, and Scripture

Question: What is the chief end of man?
Answer: Man's chief end is to glorify God (1Cor 10:31), and to enjoy Him forever (Ps 73:25f).

Question: What rule has God given to direct us how we may glorify and enjoy Him?
Answer: The Word of God which is contained in the Scripture of the Old and New Testaments (Eph 2:20; 2Tim 3:14-17) is the only rule to direct us how we may glorify God and enjoy Him (1Jn 1:3).

Question: What do the Scriptures principally teach?
Answer: The Scriptures principally teach what man is to believe concerning God, and what duty God requires of man (2Tim 1:13; Eccles 12:13).
