About Our Church

Crestview is a literal and fundamental, Bible believing church. Let me explain what we mean by literal. We believe that in the original language (Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic), God wrote exactly what He meant and used the words He intended when He inspired the Bible to be written through the original authors. Most of the Bible is very straightforward and means exactly what it says and does not need any interpretation. It is true that in some cases it is difficult to get the exact meaning to translate from the original language into modern English but that is why we use multiple translations as well as looking at the meaning in the original language. There are parts of the Bible that are symbolic or are written as analogies or parables but these are indicated in their context and are a small portion of the text. Therefore we always approach the text from a literal perspective unless the context clearly indicates otherwise. The text of the Bible does not need to be changed to adapt to modern culture or ideas. It is the timeless, unchanging, and absolute Truth of God.

When trying to understand any passage of the Bible we first understand its context and then we always use Scripture to interpret Scripture.
