"Sola Scriptura"

Since the time of Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation, Protestant Christians have firmly believed in the doctrine of sola scriptura (literally, "only scripture")– the Bible as the sole guide to authentic faith in Christ, not the Church.  Modern day Bible studies, church youth groups, and Bible-based institutions are witness to the central importance of the Bible in the Christian life.

Today, evangelicals still hold firm belief in the Bible as the unfaltering word of God.  A study of American evangelical college students and seminarians revealed a 90% consensus of views on the Bible as “the inspired Word of God, not mistaken in its teachings.”  Furthermore, 40% of those surveyed agreed that the Bible is “to be taken literally, word for word.”
