Why the Bible is important

As Christians, we want to know the whole counsel of God as contained in His Word, the Bible, and not just the parts that we like or that we are familiar with. This is because, for us:  

  • 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.  2 Timothy 3:16-17 (New International Version)
The Bible, written through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, is the guide-book for life.That same indwelling Spirit gives the Christian the power to carry out what is written in it as well as to understand the Spiritual truths contained in it. 
  •  Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light for my path. 
    Psalm 119:105 (New International Version)

The Bible contains the story of God’s dealings with men and women since the beginning, and unfolds His plan to bring everything in creation under the Lordship of His Son Jesus Christ.
