Basis - Scripture - II Timothy 3:16-17
"Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another - showing us          
truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God's way.           
Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us."
