In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
So, God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
GNT … How do we approach the Bible?
We come to the Bible knowing there is a God.
The Bible does not make elaborate arguments for the existence of God. However, it does tell us how we can know God exists.
The Bible tells us we can know God exists because of what we see in creation.
We come to the Bible believing it is the place where God has spoken to man, perfectly and comprehensively.
We come to the Bible knowing the copies we have in our hands are reliable duplicates (though not perfect duplicates) of the exact writings, which God perfectly inspired.
We come to the Bible knowing the unique importance of every Book and every Page, every chapter, every verse and every word.
We come to the Bible in Faith!
