The Place and Priority  of the Word of God

Since the Word of God is foundational and absolutely essential to true spirituality, fellowship, spiritual sustenance, effectiveness in service and ministry, faith and doctrinal accuracy, we believe that the most important function of this local church, and its central thrust, is consistent teaching and study of the Word of God (1 Timothy 6:4-7)

The study of the Word of God is not an end in itself, but it is a high priority and a necessary channel for fellowship with God and thereby also for effective ministry to one another and to the world. It will not, therefore, be bypassed or made secondary in the interest of social concerns, actions, or activities, but must be so promoted that the Word, and the teaching of the Word, become the pulse and heartbeat behind all church and non-church related activities or concerns (Psalms 119:1 ff; 138:2; Isaiah 77:2(b); Romans 15:4; 16:25-26: 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 Timothy 1:5; 4:1-16; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 4:1-3).
