ready always to give an answer to every man that asks
Do we believe the Bible?

If we do, then we would believe what is written in the Bible. We
would believe that the universe was created in six days and Adam
and Eve sinned by eating forbidden fruit. That sin caused the fall
of mankind. We would believe in the Flood and the Ark of Noah
and the Tower of Babel. We would believe that the Red Sea
parted for Moses and that God wrote the Commandments on
tablets of stone. We would believe that Samson slaughtered a
thousand Philistines with a bone and David slaughtered Goliath
with a stone.

We would believe that Jesus walked on the sea, calmed the sea,
called fish into nets, cured the blind, cured the lame, brought
forth bread from the earth, raised the dead, rebuilt the Temple of
God in three days, and saved mankind with his blood.

There is much more according to the Bible:

And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the
which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that
even the world itself could not contain the books that
should be written. Amen.

Do we believe consensus science?
If we do, then we believe that nothing exploded and became
hydrogen which turned into young-earth creationists eleven
billion years later.

The Bible has a word for this, too:

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.

We recommend accepting the multiple, corroborating eyewitness
accounts supported by predictive prophecies and secular histories
and archaeology.
