We teach that the sixty-six books of the Bible are sacred Scripture, the written, objective, propositional revelation of God (1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Corinthians 2:13) which are the product of the dual authorship of the Holy Spirit and selected men (2 Peter 1:20-21) and as a result are inspired by God in all their parts, fully and equally (2 Timothy 3:16).
Being thus divinely inspired, the Scriptures are the Word of God (John 10:35) and are therefore inerrant in the original writings even to the smallest letter (Matthew 5:18).
The Scriptures were designed for the practical instruction of believers, and being the final and complete direct revelation from God for this age, constitute the only authoritative and infallible rule of life and practice for every Christian (2 Timothy 3:14-17).
We teach the literal, grammatical-historical interpretation of Scripture and that, although every passage may have several applications, there is only one true interpretation. This understanding affirms the belief that the opening chapters of Genesis present creation in six literal days (Genesis 1:31; Exodus 31:17).
