The inspiration and authority of Scripture is the most basic issue. The Church’s authority is not human opinion, man’s reason, or tradition. We must know, believe, teach, and obey the Bible. Scripture must genuinely govern the life of the church on a practical level day-to-day. Additionally, we work to be "whole-Bible Christians." Both Old and New Covenant Scripture must be wisely interpreted, believed, and obeyed. All other forms of special revelation and the tongues and prophecies associated with them have ceased. Because Scripture is the ultimate standard, we consider ourselves Reformed and reforming. Even the points of our confessional documents are subject to examination and critique from the standpoint of God’s perfect Word.
