What We Believe
As an orthodox, evangelical, and Reformed congregation, we are members of the Fellowship of Presbyterians, having affirmed their Essential Tenets and Covenant, which give greater articulation to the following beliefs we hold:
The inspiration, infallibility and authority of the Bible as the written Word of God.
The biblical revelation of God as Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, eternally existing, equal in power and distinct in person.
The sinfulness of all men and women and our resulting inability to seek out or please God by our own efforts.
The divine incarnation, life, and saving death of the unique Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ, who died as the atoning sacrifice for the sin of humanity. We believe that there is no salvation for anyone apart from faith in him.
The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the grave.
The person and work of the Holy Spirit in drawing people to Christ, enabling them to believe in him to live godly lives.
The necessity for Christians to follow Jesus Christ in personal and often costly discipleship.
The church as a fellowship of born again persons, committed to helping one another grow in their Christian lives.
The privilege and power of prayer.
The call upon Christians to reach out to all the world, inviting people to faith in Christ and living in sacrificial, Christlike servanthood.
The return of Jesus Christ to judge all persons and to welcome those who have trusted him into his eternal kingdom.
We also affirm:
The Nicene Creed The Apostles’ Creed
The Scots Confession The Heidelberg Catechism
The Second Helvetic Confession The Westminster Standards
Theological Declaration of Barmen The Confession of 1967
