The Bible is the inerrant and complete Word of God, the final authority in all matters of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17). This divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of the writings (historical, poetical, doctrinal and prophetical) as appeared in the original manuscripts (Luke 24:44). Thus, the Scriptures are 100% true and accurate and contain no error at all in any area about which they speak (John 17:17).
God has providentially preserved the Scriptures, which are everlasting (Psalm 119:89), so that they are essentially the same as the original inspired words (Isaiah 59:21). These Scriptures cannot be properly understood apart from the Holy Spirit guiding the true believer (1 Corinthians 2:12), as the Spirit is the author and interpreter of Scripture (2 Peter 1:20-21). The Scriptures are truth and they are the final authority in all matters which pertain to salvation and Christian living (Romans 15:4).
