The Inspired Word of God
We believe that “all Scripture is given by inspiration of God”. By inspiration, we mean that God guided the human authors of the sixty-six books of the Bible so that, using their own personalities and styles, they composed and recorded without error His revelation in the words of the original manuscripts.
We believe that the Scriptures are God’s complete and final revelation centering on the Person and work of Jesus Christ and are intended for our practical instruction for faith and practice and fully applicable to our everyday life.
26 And as for the dead being raised, have you not read in the book of Moses, in the passage about the bush, how God spoke to him, saying, ‘I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’?
36 David himself, in the Holy Spirit, declared,
“‘The Lord said to my Lord,
Sit at my right hand,
until I put your enemies under your feet.’
11 And when they bring you to trial and deliver you over, do not be anxious beforehand what you are to say, but say whatever is given you in that hour, for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.
13 And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.
16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
21 For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
4 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
1:1 Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.
