The Holy Scriptures
The Bible is God's written revelation to man, and thus the sixty-six books of the Bible given to us by the Holy Spirit is the complete inspired Word of God (1 Corinthians 2:7-14; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
The Word of God is verbally inspired in every word (2 Timothy 3:16), inerrant, infallible, sufficient and God-breathed. We teach the literal interpretation of Scripture which affirms the belief that the opening chapters of Genesis present creation in six literal days (Genesis 1:31; Exodus 31:17).
The Bible constitutes the only infallible rule of faith and practice (Matthew 5:18; 24:35; John 10:35; 16:12-13; 17:17; 1 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
God spoke in His written Word by a process of dual authorship. The Holy Spirit superintended the human authors, and through their individual personalities and different styles of writing, they composed and recorded God's Word to man (2 Peter 1:20 21) without error (Matthew 5:18; 2 Timothy 3:16).
There may be several applications of any given passage of Scripture; however, there is only one true interpretation. The meaning of Scripture is to be found as one diligently studies and applies the literal grammatical-historical method of interpretation under the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit (John 7:17; 16:12-15; 1 Corinthians 2:7-15; 1 John 2:20). It is the responsibility of believers to carefully learn the true intent and meaning of Scripture, recognizing that proper application is necessary for all generations.
