Its missing because the bible alone isn't a blueprint for salvation. Many things were taught by word. And the church was given power to make changes to terminology as it saw fit. Like during a controversy. Things were formulated so there is no confusion.But would you not agree that Arian belief in God is more logical to understand and explain? There is no confusion about who God is and who the Son of God is.
Why do you think the terms such as "God the Son", "Eternally begotten", "God is one in essence in 3 persons", "true God from true God", "co-equal and co-eternal", "begotten but not made" are missing from the Bible?
Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle
