A Baptist Catechism (Question #5)

This is from a Baptist Catechism patterned closely after the Westminster Confession.

Question: "How do we know that the Bible is the Word of God?
Answer: "The Bible evidences itself to be God's Word by the heavenliness of its doctrine, the unity of its parts, and its power to convert sinners and to edify saints. But only the Spirit of God can make us willing to agree and submit to the Bible as the Word of God"
