“For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty.  For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: ‘This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.’  And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.  And so we have the prophetic word confirmed , which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”  2 Peter 1:16-21 (NKJV)

How do I know the bible is a reliable source of truth?


“The Bible is a reliable collection of historical documents written down by eyewitnesses during the life time of other eyewitnesses.  They report super-natural events that took place in fulfillment of specific prophecies and claim their writings are divine, rather than human in origin.”    Dr. Voddie Baucham

Here at Granite Hills Baptist Church, we believe the Bible to contain the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers.  Its doctrine is holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.  Read it to be wise, believe it to be saved, and practice it to be holy.  It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.  It is a traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword and the Christians character.  Here heaven is open, and the gates of hell are disclosed.
