Final Authority for Matters of Belief and Conduct

The statement of faith does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God that speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe. For purposes of Hope Bible Church's faith, doctrine, practice, policy, and discipline, our board of elders is Hope Bible Church’s final interpretive authority on the Bible’s meaning and application.
