…As Our Sole Authority
“The whole bible was given by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and helps us to do what is right.” 2 Timothy 3:16 Since God’s Word is the only completely reliable and truthful authority, we accept the Bible as our “Manual for Living”. Our first question when faced with a decision is, “What does the Bible say?” We practice daily Bible reading, Bible study, and Bible memorization. The Bible is the basis for all we believe. We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally inspired word of God, the final authority for faith and life, inerrant in the original writings, infallible, and God-breathed (2 Peter 1:20, 21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12, 13).
