The Holy Bible

That every word of the original autographs (consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments with no Apocrypha) was given to the prophets and apostles by inspiration of the Holy Ghost in such a manner that every word might be said to have come from the mouth of God. At the same time, God’s choice of words reflected the personalities of the prophets and apostles in literary style, vocabulary, etc. Exodus 20:1; Isaiah 59:21Jeremiah 30:2; John 17:8; Acts 28:25; Galatians 1:12; I Thessalonians 2:13; II Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 1:1; II Peter 11:21; 3:2Revelation 1:1    

That the doctrine of inspiration is of little value apart from the doctrine of the preservation of God’s “words”. Exodus 24:3; Deuteronomy 6:6,7; 18:18; 27:3,8; 29:29; Joshua 3:9; 8:32-35; Job 22:22; 23:12; Psalms 12:6, 7; 78:1; 119:89, 103, 130, 140; Proverbs 22:21; 30:5, 6; Matthew 4:4; John 6:63; 17:8; I Corinthians 2:13; I Thessalonians 2:13; Revelation 22:18, 19) Since no one living today holds (or has ever seen) the original autographs, the Bible we believe in is one that is available to man today.  We believe God has preserved the holy word of God “the scriptures”) for the last period of the Church Age in the King James 1611 Authorized Version. Every word therein is inerrant and infallible with no need of correction. Not only is the Authorized Version superior to all other versions and translations, but it is superior to any Greek text in existence.The King James 1611 Authorized Version will be the final authority in all matters of faith and practice above the opinions of man, tradition or any other source. (Mark 7:9,13; IThessalonians 2:13; II Timothy 3:16-17)      

That the word of God is eternally existent. (Psalms 119:89; Isaiah 40:8Matthew 24:35; Mark 13:31; Hebrews 11:3; I Peter 1:23-25). Though given to men at a point in time, the word of God has and always will exist incorruptible. 

That only those foreign translations made from the King James 1611 Authorized Version or from the Textus Receptus Greek Text shall be considered reliable. All others should be used with caution and compared with the King James Version.      

That other versions and paraphrases that change the words of the King James Version are considered to be the work of Satan to undermine the  believer’s confidence in the authority of God’s Holy Word. (Deuteronomy 4:2;12:32; Proverbs 30:6; Jeremiah 8:8,9; Revelation 22:19)      

That understanding of the scriptures comes only to the born-again child of God. While one may obtain knowledge of the Bible through study at a Bible school or seminary, understanding comes only by the illumination of the Holy Spirit. (Psalms 119:130; Luke 24:45; John 16:13; I Corinthians 2:14Ephesians 1:17,18)   

That unsaved men, not possessing the gift of the Holy Spirit, can have no understanding of the word of God except the understanding of the plan of salvation which is a work of the Holy Spirit outside of man. (Matthew 22:29John 8:43,47; 16:13; II Corinthians 2:17; II Peter 3:16)   

That having authority and power over all things, the word of God is also the only way to salvation. (Matthew 22:29; John 1:12; 5:24; 6:63,68; Romans 10:14,17; Ephesians 6:17Philippians 2:16; I Timothy 3:15; Hebrews 4:12,13; I Peter 1:23)      

That a Bible-believer is one who subjects himself to the pure word of God (the King James 1611 Authorized Version)      

The Bible-believer is exhorted to: Study the word of God (II Timothy 2:15), Memorize it (Psalms 119:11), Obey it (Psalms 119:9), Cleanse himself with it (Psalms 119:9), Love it.

Regarding authority: The Bible-believing Christian puts the word of God above everything. All others put some thing above the Bible.
