The primary events of God's work of salvation happened 2,000 years ago and more. But God has provided a reliable record of His actions in human history to achieve salvation for sinners. This record is called the Bible, (also called the Scriptures and also God's Word), and it is our authority for all that we say and do in the Church, (Sola Scriptura, Scripure Alone). We do not reject any parts of Scripture, even though they are no longer popular with the world. The Bible informs us. We submit to God's Word, even though this is often uncomfortable, because in the end the Bible teaches us about Christ!
