2. The proclamation of God's message to us as both Law and Gospel is the Word of God, revealing judgement and mercy through word and deed, beginning with the Word in creation, continuing in the history of Israel, and centering in all its fullness in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
3. The canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the written Word of God. Inspired by God's Spirit speaking through their authors, they record and announce God's revalation centering in Jesus Christ. Through the God's Spirit speaks to us to create and sustain Chrisitian faith and fellowship for service in the world.
This congregation accepts the Canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as the inspired and inerrant Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of its proclamation, fait and life.
