The Bible, God's Holy Word

Its Inspiration

The Holy Bible, consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments (Genesis through Revelation) is an authorative, all sufficient, and complete and final relevation of God to man. The Bible was originally written by "inspiration" (being "God-breathed") in which the writers were "moved" (or "carried" or "borne" along) by the Holy Spirit in such a definite way that their writings were supernaturally, plenarily, and verbally inspired, free from any error, infallible, and inerrant. The Bible is in truth, the word of God.
Acts 1:16; 2 Peter 1:19-21; 1 Thess. 2:13; 2 Tim. 3:16-17

Its Supreme Standard

The Bible was given for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness and is to be the center of true Christian unity and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions shall be based.
Psalm 119:11,105; John 5:39; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; John 17:17; 2 Cor. 5:10

God has promised to preserve His Words and, by His Providential care, God has kept His Word pure down through the ages as He promised.
Psalm 12:6-7; 78:1-8; 119:89,111,152,160; Eccles. 3:14; Isaiah 30:8; 40:6-8; Matt. 4:4; 5:17-18; 24:35; John 10:35; 1 Peter 1:23-25; 2 John 1:2

Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. John 17:17
