Westminster Larger Catechism in modern English question number twenty-one:

Q. 21. Did mankind continue in the state in which God created them?

A. Since our first parents were left to the freedom of their own wills, they transgressed the commandment of God, through the temptation of Satan, by eating the forbidden fruit; and thus they fell from the state of innocence in which they were created.
