- The Doctrine of the Bible is an essential doctrine to impart to our children in that it gives them a foundation for believing the right things about everything else.
- Scripture is inspired by God, that is, every word is the word that He wanted written. (2 Tim 3:16-17)
- Scripture is inerrant, that is, the Bible is true (Psa 18:30; 119:151). A great resource for understanding inerrancy is the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy.
- Scripture is authoritative, that is, it rightfully commands our obedience.
