The Scriptures

We believe that all the words and all the parts of the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament and the twenty-seven books of the New Testament are the only inspired Word of God.  The Bible is the product of men controlled by the Holy Spirit, and in the original manuscripts it is truth without any mixture of error.  God, in His providential care, has also kept these Scriptures authentic and trustworthy from the time of their composition until the present time.  The Bible is the center of true Christian unity and the supreme standard by which all human life and conduct will be evaluated and judged. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21)
