I believe that all scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.
I believe that the prophets were moved by the Holy Spirit and Spoke from God.
I believe that God speaks in many and various ways, and most definitively he speaks about God’s Son.
I believe that as we read scripture, we are invited to approach Christ, and hear the final and definitive Word God speak to us in his Son.
I believe that as we read and study scripture seeking Christ, we are addressed by God, that through scripture God speaks to us.
I believe the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
I believe that humans do not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.
I believe that the words of the LORD are flawless, like silver refined in a furnace of clay, purified seven times.
I believe scripture is trustworthy and precious, deserving of my study, love, time and energy.
