We believe...the Bible is not a book, but THE Book! We believe...the Bible consists of (66) books, (39) Books in the Old Testament and (27) Books in the New Testament.
Yet, the Bible is ONE Book:
It bears witness of ONE God
It forms ONE continuous story
It has ONE plan of salvation
It has ONE central theme---Jesus Christ, John 5:39
We believe...in Psalm 119 "Word of GOD Psalm":
Law -- verse 1
Testimonies -- verse 2
Precept -- verse 4
Statutes -- verse 5, The Statutes are the life applications of the Law.
Commandments -- verse 6
Judgments -- verse 7, The judgments are defined in I Kings 3:9,11.
We believe...the Bible consisted approximately (40) human writers that were used to pen the Word of God. These men were separated by time and their station in life. We believe...its Symbols,
