believe that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired,
so that it is inerrant in the original manuscripts and preserved by
God in its verbal, plenary inspiration, so that it is a divinely

seals all believers at the moment of their salvation, and fills them
in response to confession of sin and yieldedness.
