Article 6: Of the Sufficiency of the Scriptures for Salvation Part 1

[Stand Firm] 3 Nov 2007--Those who hold to the historic evangelical view believe that the Bible is the sole infallible source of special revelation. This doctrine is called “Sola Scriptura” or “Scripture Alone”. Sola Scriptura does not imply that the bible is the “only” source of special revelation. Sola Scriptura is not “solo” Scriptura. Scripture “Alone” does not mean Scripture “Only”. The Reformers certainly recognized that God reveals himself through the teaching, tradition, and proclamation of the Church and, moreover, that submission to sound teaching and orthodox teachers is a necessary discipline for all believers. Nevertheless to hold to the doctrine of Sola Scriptura is to believe that while there are other sources of special revelation, Bible itself is the only infallible source of special revelation.
