From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Word of God
    (Heb. 4:12, etc.). The Bible so called because the writers of
    its several books were God's organs in communicating his will to
    men. It is his "word," because he speaks to us in its sacred
    pages. Whatever the inspired writers here declare to be true and
    binding upon us, God declares to be true and binding. This word
    is infallible, because written under the guidance of the Holy
    Spirit, and therefore free from all error of fact or doctrine or
    precept. (See INSPIRATION; BIBLE.) All
    saving knowledge is obtained from the word of God. In the case
    of adults it is an indispensable means of salvation, and is
    efficacious thereunto by the gracious influence of the Holy
    Spirit (John 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:15, 16; 1 Pet. 1:23).
