We believe that the Holy Bible is (a) verbally and plenary inspired of God; (b) that it has truth without any admixture of error for its matter; that consequently it is infallible and inerrant in all matters of which it speaks; and (c) therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man; the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions should be tried; and (d) that the Holy Bible is preserved and available to us today.
(a) II Tim. 3:16-17; II Pet. 1:19-21; Acts 1:16; Acts 28:25
(b) Psa. 119:160; Psa. 119:106; Psa. 119:130; Luke 24:25-27; John 17:17; Luke 24:44-45
(c) Psa. 119:89; Prov. 30:5-6; Rom. 3:4; I Pet. 1:23; Rev. 22:18-19; John 12:48; Isa. 8:20; Eph. 6:17; Rom. 15:4; Luke 16:31; Psa. 19:7-11; John 5:45-47; John 5:39
(d) Psa. 12:6-7; Isaiah 59:21
1. By "THE HOLY BIBLE" we mean that collection of sixty-six books, from Genesis to Revelation, which, as originally written, does not only contain and convey the Word of God, but IS the very Word and Words of God. These 66 books total 1,189 chapters. We reject all apocryphal chapters and books not contained in this canon.
2. By "INSPIRATION" we mean that the books of the Bible were written by holy men of God as they were moved by the Holy Spirit, in such a definite way that their writings were supernaturally and verbally inspired and free from error, as no other writings have ever been or ever will be inspired. We believe the King James Bible is the inspired Word of God by reason of its preservation.
3. We believe that the Texts which are faithful to the original autographs of the Bible are the Masoretic Hebrew Text of the Old Testament, and the Textus Receptus Greek Text of the New Testament, and that the King James Bible is a true and faithful translation of these two providentially preserved Texts and is exactly what God would have for us in the English language.
