The Bible is our final authority in matters of faith and practice. Therefore, our Statement of Faith reflects our best attempt to express what we believe, and how we are to live out that faith. The understanding that the Kingdom of God is the integrating motif of our understanding of the story of God, the Bible and our theology has influenced the structure of this document. From beginning to end, this Statement of Faith reflects our understanding that biblical theology is eschatological in nature and this eschatological dimension is expressed in terms of the Kingdom of God.
