ABOUT THE BIBLE
“We believe that the Bible is the word of God and the sole basis of our faith and service to God”
THE ALIMIGHTY GOD committed His words in writing (cf. Jer. 30:2). The collections of inspired books where the words of God are written is called the “Holy Scriptures” by the apostles (cf. II Tim. 3:15). All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the truth, rebuking error, correcting faults, and giving instruction for right living (cf. II Tim. 3:16-17 TEV), and also, the Holy Scriptures are able to give you the wisdom that leads to salvation (cf. II Tim. 3:17, TEV). Thus, according to the apostles:
“Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, ‘Do not go beyond what is written…” (I Corinthians 4:6 NIV, emphasis mine)
Because the Bible is the sole basis of our faith, we reject teachings not written in the Bible (e.g. Chrismas, Purgatory, Trinity, etc.) and other basis of faith (e.g. Catechism, Book of Mormons, Apocrypha, etc.).
Thus, all our doctrines, beliefs, teachings and practices are written in the Holy Scriptures or based in the teachings written in the Bible. he Bible-centered method is one of the defining characteristics that make this Church unique.
