We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as God's authoritative message to men concerning the way of salvation. Holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. The books of the Bible are the record of the messages which these inspired men received from God. The Old Testament is preliminary and the New Testament is the completed revelation of the Gospel of our redemption. In our study of the Scriptures we are constantly impressed with the unity and progress of the revelation of divine truth. This truth was imparted to men by slow degrees as they were able to receive it. The earlier books of the Old Testament give us the beginnings and the books of the New Testament the endings of the saving truths of God's revelation. The wonderful unity and harmony of the various parts of Scripture show with great clearness the presence of an overruling and guiding divine mind. The center of the entire revelation is Jesus Christ and His eternal Kingdom. All the earlier stages lead up to the crowning revelation in Jesus Christ. Thus the incarnation of the Son of God is the key to the meaning of all history. From the above setting forth of our view, it clearly follows that we hold that the Scriptures are the sufficient, certain and authoritative revelation of God in all matters of faith and practice, and that obedience to their teachings is binding upon all men.
