Scripture

We believe the Bible, containing the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God. It is verbally inspired (verbal plenary) and completely without error (historically, scientifically, morally, and spiritually) in the original manuscripts. The Holy Spirit superintended the writing of the Bible in such a way that the human authors, reflecting their own words and literary style, wrote exactly what God intended down to the very words written. The Bible is therefore our supreme and final authority in all matters that it addresses. Church tradition, personal preference and the latest insights of so-called experts are all subjugated to the Bible’s teaching. (Matthew 5:17-18; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21)


Creation

We believe that the physical universe was created by God out of nothing (ex nihilo) and declared “very good.” It asserts God's existence and gives a trustworthy revelation of God's character and purpose, though corrupted by the Fall. God’s existence, power, glory, and wisdom are clearly seen by all humanity in view of creation. A sincere study of nature can benefit a person's search for truth. The special revelation of God’s Word and the general revelation of nature, when properly interpreted, will never contradict each other. (Genesis 1:1,31; Psalm 19:1-6; Romans 1:18-23; 8:9-22).
