: In Latin how do I say Creed Based Solely on Scripture? This is for a worship service I am piecing together, I would like to use it as the name for one of the elements of the service. If anyone could help me I would appreciate it.

The first step is -- how would you say it in English? Fundamentalism means a person who believes the Bible is the literal truth. Adam and Eve were not "symbols" or a nice story -- they were two people who were the mother and father of the human race. But I don't think fundamentalism is what you're going for.

Aren't the Jews called the "People of the Book"?

There are several excellent verses of the Bible that refer to scripture. Scriptures or the Word: are:
...a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psa. 119)

More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. (Psa. 19)

...the Sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Eph. 6)

...as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. (Psa. 12)
