Statement of Faith (2.2)

II. Scripture
B. Inspiration

The 66 books of the Holy Bible in it’s original texts are not merely words imbued with God’s power, but they are God’s very own words. In this sense, when Scripture speaks, it is exactly the same as when God speaks. The Holy Bible was not dropped out of the sky as a completed manuscript, but was written down when God’s Spirit used writers who were perfectly prepared by the Spirit so that they would speak from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

2 Timothy 2:16-17

16All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

2 Peter 1

19And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, 20knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone's own interpretation. 21For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
