The following represents the evidence for believing the Bible to be God’s Word:

1.       The Scriptures are breathed out by God in such a way as to be totally authoritative and binding for all of a person’s life and godliness (2 Tim 3:14–17; 2 Pet 1:3).

2.      God commands people to accept Scripture as His written Word (1 Cor 14:37 John 5:47 Luke 16:31 1 John 4:6).

3.      God has promised that His Word will endure for all of eternity (Matt 5:17; John 10:31; Isa 59:21; Ps 111:7–8 ).

4.      The New Testament authors always recognized the Old Testament as the sufficient Word ( Rom 4:23; 15:4; 2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:20–21).

5.      The New Testament claims the same authority for itself as it distinguishes in the Old Testament (1 Tim 5:18; 2 Pet 3:16).

6.       Christians must accept the Bible as the written Word of God. The Word can not be judged by the standards of men. The Word of God stands by itself and is established and made incorruptible by the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

7.      Any apparent difficulties with the teaching of the Bible rest on a person’s miscomprehension of the world, the Scripture, or both.

8.     Christians can have complete assurance that the Holy Spirit is enabling us to communicate to and understand God through His Word.

9.      The Holy Spirit will always be making students of the Word more like Christ.

10.  The deeper the students go into the depths of the Word, the more they will see, feel, think, and act like Christ Himself.
