Definition #1: Scripture
Next to the person of Jesus, the Bible is the best and most reliable witness to the character and will of God the Father. It is the final arbiter of faith and practice. It is also without error in its original revelation, yet translations still faithfully convey the words of God today. Scripture is not a textbook of any sort, but the storybook of God’s redemptive activity throughout time. In it is contained the forgiveness of sin, the promises of mercy, the realty of transformation and hope for the future through Jesus the Christ and his teachings.
