What we Believe

OUR BASIC BELIEFS

1. The Bible is the authoritative Word of God for faith and life.

2. There is one God in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3. God is sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.

4. All men are sinful and totally corrupt, making them subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

5. Jesus Christ is 100% God and 100% man.

6. The sacrificial death of Jesus Christ satisfied the wrath of God for His people.

7. Sinners are declared righteous by grace alone through faith alone.

8. The church is the community of professing Christians and their children.

9. Jesus Christ will return again as Judge of all men and to receive His church.

OUR DOCTRINAL STANDARDS

The Bible is our final rule for faith and life. To us, the teachings of the Bible are faithfully summarized in three ecumenical creeds and three Reformed confessions.

The ecumenical creeds that we adhere to are:

1. The Apostles’ Creed

2. The Nicene Creed

3. The Athanasian Creed

The Reformed confessions are also known as the Three Forms of Unity (TFU). They are:

1. The Belgic Confession of Faith (1561)

2. The Heidelberg Catechism (1563)

3. The Canons of Dordt (1618-19)
