Our churches believe that the Holy Scripture or the Holy Bible is the Word of God. This Word has no equal because it is:
- inspired by God the Holy Spirit who caused many different men to write it over a considerable period of time.
- infallible in that it is a completely reliable and trustworthy book which should not and need not be doubted;
- inerrant, meaning that whatever is revealed in it is without error, contradiction or misrepresentation;
- sufficient, because it fully contains the will of God and reveals all that we need to believe in order to be saved.
This Word represents the final rule of faith and life in our churches. We receive it for regulation, foundation and confirmation of our faith. It serves as the basis for all authority in our churches.
