We believe God, in His immeasurable wisdom and strength, has preserved His Holy Word throughout the ages of time, even to this present day. We also believe the King James Version of the Holy Bible to be the most accurate representation of the original manuscripts and we consider it our final and absolute authority above and beyond all other authorities here on this earth.
If your Bible is a King James Bible, it preserves God’s words because it was translated using formal equivalence. All other Bibles were translated using dynamic equivalence, in which the translator is free to change words as long as he conveys the “idea.”
We also agree with James L. Melton, who wrote “How I Know The King James Bible is the Word of God.”
Here is the introduction from his article:
There are many good works that one can read on the authority of the King James Bible, and this particular effort offers nothing really new. However, it does attempt to explain the issue in a simple and brief manner for all to understand. Over the years I have learned a great deal about this issue, and I believe that a truth worth learning is a truth worth telling.
Many preachers and teachers across our land talk about “preferring” and “using” the KJV, but I haven’t heard them speak much about BELIEVING it. Many prefer it and use it, because that’s what their congregations prefer and use, but they do not BELIEVE it to be the infallible words of God. They are taught in college to USE, PREFER, and RECOMMEND the KJV, but they are NOT taught to BELIEVE it. Most “Christian colleges” teach that the King James Bible is only a translation, and that NO translation is infallible. Consequently, the average minister today uses a Book which he doesn’t even believe.
Now, I thank God that I don’t have that problem. I don’t have to play make-believe with anyone about the word of God. I believe it. I believe the King James Bible is the preserved and infallible words of God. It doesn’t merely “contain” the word of God: it IS the word of God. I’m absolutely sure of it, and I’d like to give a few reasons why. Here are twelve reasons how I know that the KJV is the word of God…
We firmly believe the King James Version, is the infallible, inerrant, Word of God. We greatly appreciate you reading this article about why we prefer the King James Version over other versions of the Bible. We also ask that you would search your heart (asking God diligently through prayer) to reveal His knowledge to you regarding the many different versions of the Bible available today.
Have you ever asked yourself: “Why are there so many different versions of the Bible available today?”

There’s another great article on Mr. Melton’s site named: “Bible Verse Comparison.” This article lists over 300 changes made in newer versions of the Bible! You’ll be astounded to see all the changes! There have even been words and whole scriptures removed!
