Statements of Faith

The author here asserts that the purposes and goals of this curriculum are in agreement with the following excerpts from statements of faith of eight parachurch ministries regarding the place of the Scriptures in the life of the Christian. (Eight selected examples from the Internet)

We believe that the Bible, in its entirety, is divine revelation, and we submit to the authority of the Holy Scripture, acknowledging it to be inerrantly inspired by God and carrying the full weight of His authority. (www.ligonier.org - the ministry founded by Rev. Dr. R.C. Sproul and the leaders of his church in 1971.)

The American Family Association believes that God has communicated absolute truth to man through the Bible, and that all men everywhere at all times are subject to the authority of God's Word. Therefore, a culture based on Biblical truth best serves the well-being of our country, in accordance with the vision of our founding fathers. (www.afa.org - the ministry founded by Rev. Don Wildmon in 1977.)

The 66 books of the Bible are the written Word of God. The Bible is divinely inspired and inerrant throughout. Its assertions are factually true in all the original autographs. It is the supreme authority in everything it teaches. (www.answersingenesis.org - the ministry founded by Ken & Mally Ham in 1993)

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association believes the Bible to be the infallible Word of God, that it is His holy and inspired Word, and that it is of supreme and final authority. (www.bgea.com - the ministry founded by Billy & Ruth Graham in 1950.)

We believe the Bible is inspired and empowered by God, infallible and authoritative. (www.awmi.net - the ministry founded by Andrew & Jamie Wommack in 1976.)

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.(www.bibleleague.org - the ministry founded in 1938 by William and Elizabeth (Betty) Chapman)

The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God's infallible written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, and that it was written without error (inerrant) in the original manuscripts. It is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks. We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. Because of the specialized calling of our movement, we desire to allow the freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible alone, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us. (www.campuscrusadeforchrist.com - the ministry founded by Dr. Bill and Vonette Bright at UCLA in 1951)

We believe the Old and New Testaments to be the infallible Word of God; inerrant as originally given, verbally inspired by God, the complete and sufficient revelation of His will for salvation and conduct." (www.rzim.org/about/vision --- the ministry founded by Ravi Zacharias in 1984 to pursue his calling as a "classical evangelist in the arena of the intellectually resistant". www.wikipedia.org)
