Doctrine of Scripture

God has chosen to reveal Himself to man through visions (Ezek 1:1), dreams (Gen 20:6), his spoken Word (1 Sam 3:1-21), angels (Luke 1:11-38), the preincarnate ministry of Jesus (Gen 16:7; Exod 3:2), anthropomorphisms (Exod 31:18) and through Christ Jesus (John 1:18).

God's Word is “God breathed”. The Holy Spirit moved men to record it, insuring its accuracy (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:16-21). The work of the Holy Spirit enabled the writers to record God's divine Word, exactly in its original autograph, without error. As an inerrant work, God's written Word is sufficient for all man's needs, for life and godliness (2 Tim 3:15-17). God has providentially preserved it through scribal transmission, thousands of extant manuscripts and translations.
