What We Believe About The Scriptures

    We believe the Holy Scriptures of the old and New Testaments to be the Bible, as it is in truth, the Word of God ... (I Thessalonians 2:13).  We believe in verbal, plenary inspiration in the original writings, and God's preservation of  His  pure words  to  every generation     (II Timothy 3:16, Psalms 12:6-8).  The Masoretic Text of the Old Testament and the Received Text of the New Testament (Textus Receptus) are those texts of the original languages we accept and use: the King James Version of the Bible is the only English version we accept and use.  The Bible is our sole authority of faith and practice.
