The Holy Scriptures
We believe the Bible to be, as it is in truth, the Word of God consisting of 66 books which make up the Old and New Testaments. – I Thessalonians 2:13
We believe that every word of the Bible is inspired by God, making the Bible infallible in its content, inerrant in its teaching, and sufficient as the foundation for life and ministry. – 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Psalm 119:128
We believe that God worked in inspiration through the person of the Holy Spirit moving men to write His words through their own personalities and writing styles. – 2 Peter 1:21
We believe that God’s work in inspiration ensured the purity of His Word as it was delivered and that God’s supernatural work of preservation has ensured a pure copy of His Word for every generation, and that the extent of His work in preservation applies to the very words and not simply to the ideas and concepts. – Psalm 12:6-7
We believe that God’s Word has been preserved in the Masoretic Texts of the Old Testament and the Received Greek Texts of the New Testament, and that the King James Version of the Bible is the preserved Word of God in English and shall, therefore, be the official version of Forest Hills Baptist Church.
