We believe that the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired word of God [2 Timothy 3:16] in written form. Because of its Divine inspiration, it is superior to any other book or collection of books known in the world, and it requires our untrembling confidence in all that it teaches.
Its message and truth originated with God, and it came "by men [who] spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit" [2 Peter 1:21]. While the Bible records the acts of God in history and tells us of His love; at the same time, it reflects the backgrounds, styles and vocabularies of the human authors.
We believe that the Bible alone is our supreme, final and all-sufficient authority, both individually and cooperatively, in all matters of faith and practice.
