What We Believe at Goshen Baptist Church
February 2018: The Scriptures
We believe that all Scripture is inspired by God. 2 Timothy 3: 16-17 says, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (NIV) God instructed the writers of the Scripture to write the message of God using their own words, their culture, their own style and even their own traditions.
God speaks to us through His Word. His Word reveals to us how to be saved. It also tells us how to live and how to get along with each other. God's Word is relevant as though it was written today. We believe the Bible has the answers to all our problems and circumstances we face in our daily lives. We believe the Scriptures is the completed authority of the Word of God.
The Holy Bible has God for its author, salvation for its end and truth without any part in error. We believe all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principle by which God judges us and therefore is and will remain to the end of the world. Somone has once said, "The B-I-B-L-E stands for Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth."
