For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
Ephesians 2:8 NKJV

Sola Fide - Faith Alone
Justification is by faith alone. The merit of Christ imputed to us by faith is the sole ground of our acceptance by God, by which our sins are remitted.

     knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ,
     even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not
     by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified.
Galatians 2:16 NKJV

Sola Gratia - Grace Alone
Our salvation rests solely on the work of God's grace for us and in us.

     For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of
     God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 
Ephesians 2:8-9 NKJV

     God sent Jesus to die in our place...
     The righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For
     there is no difference; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified
     freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus
Romans 3:22-24 NKJV

Solus Christus - Christ Alone
Christ is the only mediator through whose work we are redeemed.

     For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the
     righteousness of God in Him. 
2 Corinthians 5:21 NKJV

     Speaking of Jesus...
     "Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among
     men by which we must be saved."
Acts 4:12 NKJV

Sola Scriptura - Scripture Alone
The Bible is the sole written divine revelation and alone can bind the conscience of believers absolutely.

     And he said to them:
"You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order
     to observe your own traditions!
Mark 7:9 NIV

     A Warning...
     For testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds
     to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone
     takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from
     the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
Revelation 22:18-19 NKJV

Solio Deo Gloria - Glory to God Alone
To God alone belongs the glory

am the Lord, that is My name; And My glory I will not give to another, Nor My praise to
     carved images. 
Isaiah 42:8 NKJV
