Scripture holds a decisive place in our shared identity as Reformed Christians. While we value our theological traditions and our polity, Scripture always has the final authoritative word on our faith and life. We do not look to Scripture because it is a common or “traditional” thing to do, or because the church has given it authority. In the words of the Belgic Confession, we believe the teachings of Scripture “because the Holy Spirit testifies in our hearts that they are from God, and also because they prove themselves to be from God” (article 5).
This three-part video series explores what it means for Reformed Christians to read and interpret the Bible as Scripture, as the Word of God. The video series was developed in response to a recommendation approved by General Synod 2016, calling for a denomination-wide discussion centered on a Reformed understanding of the nature, purpose, authority, and interpretation of Scripture (MGS 2016, p. 87).
