If there is one true God, then that God defines truth. We believe that the God described in the Bible is the one and only true God. The Bible testifies to itself as a record of God's words and works.
We believe the Bible is the ultimate authority for the truth about God, humanity, life and morality. We believe it is God's revelation, not a human explanation. In other words, in the Bible God makes himself known to us. The Bible was NOT conceived in the hearts or minds of the human writers as their explanation of God and human history. Instead, they recorded what they heard and saw in a process provided for and protected by God.
We believe that God speaks today in ways that are described in the Bible, such as dreams, visions, prophetic messages, the still small voice of the Lord, and the counsel of wise Christians. However, all of today's messages from God are open to human error and are to be tested against the Bible and according to Biblical instruction for accuracy, authenticity and application.
