“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”
2 Timothy 3:16
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. It is the single most important source of our understanding of God and all of His creation. It shapes our faith, guides our life, and gives us a lens in which to view and understand the world around us. It is the book through which God has chosen to reveal the way to Heaven. As John Wesley said, “O give me that book! At any price, give me the book of God.”
We believe that the Bible stands alone as the source for absolute truth. The Bible is the only reliable moral compass that we have. We are moral and spiritual creatures living in a world that is controlled by moral and spiritual values. We cannot, either individually or collectively, decide what truth is or what is to be accepted as a true standard for moral behavior without the transcendent absolute truths that are given to us in Scripture. To deny Scripture as the standard for absolute truth is to remove any absolute standard for moral behavior and reasoning.
The Word of God—the Bible—is the basis for all of our beliefs.
