2.3 All of God’s special revelation to man in the present day is found in the Bible. (This statement is supported by the biblical theology of revelation; the following ref­erences should be read in relation to one another: Hebrews 1:1–2Acts 1:21–221 Corinthians 9:115:7–8Ephesians 2:20. See also §6.2.) The Bible is sufficient, revealing all we need to know for salvation and godly living (Isaiah 8:20Luke 16:29–31Ephesians 2:20 2 Timothy 3:16–17). Noth­ing must be taken away from Scripture and nothing added to it. The Bible alone is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice; our consciences are bound by it alone, not by any council, creed, individ­ual or supposed new revelation (Deuteronomy 4:212:32Isaiah 8:20Matthew 15:1–922:2931–32Acts 17:1128:23–25Revelation 22:18–19).

Article 2.3

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.
