BIBLE

f5eda539-7efc-4713-a516-24403cd0afb6The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and is His revelation to people of Himself and His plan of salvation. We accept the Bible, including the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament, as the written Word of God. We believe the Bible is an essential and infallible record of God’s self-disclosure to mankind. It leads us to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. Therefore, as originally given, the Bible is free of error in all it teaches. Each book is to be interpreted according to its context and purpose, and all believers are exhorted to study the Scriptures and diligently apply them to their lives. The Scriptures are the authoritative and normative rule and guide of all Christian life, practice and doctrine. They are totally sufficient and must not be added to, superseded or changed by later tradition, extra-biblical revelation or worldly wisdom. (Psalm 119:89; Matthew 24:35; 2 Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21)
