ARTICLES OF FAITH
OF THE SCRIPTURES
We believe that the Holy Bible was written by men supernaturally inspired (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21); that it is truth without any admixture or error for its matter (Psalm 12:6); and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age (Psalm 12:7; Psalm 119:89; Matt. 5:18), the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man; the true center of Christian unity and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried (2 Tim. 3:17).
By “The Holy Bible” we mean that collection of sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelation, which as originally written does not only contain and convey the Word of God but IS the very Word of God (John 17:17).
By “inspiration” we mean that the books of the Bible were written by holy men of old, as they were moved by the Holy Spirit, in such a definite way that their writings were supernaturally and verbally inspired and free from error, as no other writings have ever been or ever will be inspired (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Pet. 1:21).
