1978 Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy

I was 12 years old, living in Colorado when the 1978 Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy was and signed by brave defenders of the Bible boldly by drafting 19 articles of affirmation and denial of Biblical Inerrancy. The summary statement describes Scripture (the Holy Bible) as “God’s witness of Himself”, “God’s own Word”, being “wholly and verbally God-given.”


Article I.
We affirm that the Holy Scriptures are to be received as the authoritative Word of God.
We deny that the Scriptures receive their authority from the Church, tradition, or any other human source.
