2.2 The Bible in its original autographs is a supernatural, verbal revelation, given by the plenary inspiration of the Holy Spirit. God is its author and it is therefore infallible, inerrant and authoritative (Exodus 20:12 Samuel 23:1–22 Kings 17:132 Chronicles 34:2136:21Nehemiah 9:30Isaiah 8:20Jeremiah 1:936:1–2Ezekiel 1:3Zechariah 7:12Malachi 4:4Matthew 21:4222:31–324326:5456Mark 12:2436Luke 1:7024:44John 1:235:3910:34–3514:2616:1319:36–3720:9Acts 1:163:187:3813:3428:25Romans 1:23:24:239:1715:41 Corinthians 2:12–136:169:1014:37Galatians 1:11–123:816224:301 Thessalonians 1:52:132 Timothy 3:15–17Hebrews 1:1–23:74:129:810:152 Peter 1:18–213:161 John 4:6Revelation 14:1322:19). By God’s singular care and providence, his word to us has been faithfully pre­served through the centuries.

This is an extract from Crystal Park Baptist Church Benoni‘s Confession of Faith. While our members must affirm the Statement of Belief our elders must, in addition, affirm the Confession of Faith. The document represents: the sound doctrine we teach, a unity between us on key aspects of the Christian faith, sets a clear expectation to our members and represents the leadership’s hopes for the congregation as a whole. This Confession is held by elders of member churches of Sola 5. Sola 5 is an association of God-centred evangelicals in Southern Africa currently with member churches in Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
