The Bible

We teach that the sixty-six books of the Protestant Bible are the only inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life. It is perfectly accurate and authoritative in everything it says, including passages that address history or science (1 Cor. 2:7-14; 2 Pet. 1:20-21, 1 Thes.2:13; 2 Tim. 3:16; Mt.5:18; 24:35; Jn.10:35; 16:12-13; 17:17; 1 Cor. 2:13; 2 Tim 3:15-17; Heb 4:12).

We teach the literal, grammatical, historical interpretation of Scripture, and that the only correct meaning of a passage is the meaning that the original author meant to convey to the original readers, and that meaning is discoverable by us(Jn 7:17; 1 Cor. 2:7-15; 1 Jn 2:20). While there are countless implications and applications for each passage, there is only one meaning and that meaning never changes.
