The Holy Scriptures

The Holy Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the written Word of God, given by divine inspiration through holy men of God who spoke and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. In this Word, God has committed to man the knowledge necessary for salvation. The Holy Scriptures are the infallible revelation of His will. They are the standard of character, the test of experience, the authoritative revealer of doctrines, and the trustworthy record of God's acts in history. (2 Peter 1:20, 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Timothy 2:17, Psalm 119:105, Proverbs 30:5, Proverbs 30:6, Isaiah 8:20, John 17:17, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, Hebrews 4:12)
