The Scriptures

We believe the Holy Bible consisting of the Old and New Testament Scriptures to be the verbally inspired Word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, and infallible (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; Matt 5:18; John 16:12-13).

Why this is important:
The revelation of God to us is the most unique and reliable witness we have to understand and know God. The Bible teaches in Rom. 10:17, “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Therefore, the Bible is our tool to know and understand who God is according to His own self-description; it is our tool to grow in faith and maturity and to learn the promises that God has given us. We take it literally. God’s truth is the anchor for our souls. It calls us to dive deep into God and there discover His blessings and the transformation He brings to our lives, our church, and our world.
