"The absolute and final authority for all matters of faith and practice is the inerrant, infallible, incorruptible word of God, which is, for English speaking people, The Authorized King James Bible, translated in 1611 A.D. For non-English speaking people, there are versions of the word of God in hundreds of other languages translated from the King James Bible, Luther's German Bible, and the Greek Manuscripts of the Traditional Received Text."


This is a good example of a very literal and legalistic statement of Faith. An example of that is their belief about the Bible. At the bottom of the page it said it had been copied from another website, but I could not find it on the other website.

Reseach Notes

Feb 26, 2012
I went to this website: http://www.mbbc.org.nz/contact_us.html and left this message:

"For Pastor Jeff Williams.
I found a Statement of Faith located here: http://swordof1611.webs.com/statementoffaith.htm
At the bottom it said that it had been:
"[Copied from Jeff Williams, Pastor, Marlborough Bible Baptist Church, Blenhiem, New Zealand, http://www.mbbc.org.nz/faq.htm.] "

Could you tell me if you wrote it, or who did? I didn't find it at the copied link. Do you still believe that, exactly as written? Do you still have it on one of your websites someplace? If so, could you tell me where it is located. I'm doing some writing and would like to refer to it as an example. I'd like to have the corect references for my bibliography.
