We Have A Final Authority - The Word Of God
At MBT we trust in God’s Word as our ultimate authority. We believe that The Holy Spirit will reveal truth to us as we study the Bible (1 Corinthians 2:10). In today’s culture, many do not seem to believe this. They have made man, not God’s Word their authority. You may wonder, “How has this happened?” At MBT the Bible, not the pastors or teachers, is the gold standard of truth in all matters of doctrine and practice. Our job is to study it and live it, not to tear it apart with human logic and doubting criticism. Basically, the Bible is to change us (Romans 12:2, John 17:17, 1 Thessalonians 2:12-13), we are not to change it (Revelation 22:18-19, 1 Corinthians 1:19-2:5). Feel free to bring whatever Bible translation or paraphrase you want to MBT, and do not worry about what anyone else is reading (No “Bible Version Police” please), but in order to prevent confusion and to maintain a firm stance on the historical “faith position” in God’s Word, we will teach from the incomparable KJV in English and the Reine Valera in Spanish.
MBT members use the KJV (English) or Reina Valera (Spanish) translations for all teaching ministries. These are Textus Receptus based Scripture.
