Cosmological - the universe must have come from somewhere, Christians believe it is from God. He is the 'First Cause'.

Teleological - the world has been designed so must have been created or designed by someone.

Ontological - God is "That than which nothing greater can be concieved", ie. we cannot think of anything greater than God and therefore God exists.

Moral - we understand right and wrong, good and bad. This knowledge must have come from God.

That's everything, personally I don't understand how people came up with some of this stuff, ontological is just weird :P hope it helps though :) my philosophy isn't until after half term, have my ethics on monday thoug - yay!
