Our Core 10 Beliefs

The following beliefs are in our estimation, points of no compromise because they are foundational beliefs of the Christian faith.

The Trinity.
The full deity and humanity of Christ.
The spiritual lostness of humanity.
The substitutionary atonement (death) and bodily resurrection of Christ.
Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
The physical return of Christ.
The authority and inerrancy of Scripture.
The Sacraments of baptism and the Lord’s Supper should be practiced today.
There is one universal church comprised of believers in Christ, in Heaven and on earth.
Marriage is between one man and one woman.


3 Forms of Unity

The following are three doctrinal statements we adhere to that originated during the Protestant Reformation of the 15 and 1600’s. These are not to be viewed as equal to Scripture, but rather sound expressions of what is revealed in the Biblical text. The Reformed Confessions serve as a reminder from those who came before us, to continually go back to the Scriptures and search them diligently.

The Heidelberg Catechism

The Heidelberg Catechism, written in 1563, originated in one of the few pockets of Calvinistic faith in the Lutheran and Catholic territories of Germany. Conceived originally as a teaching instrument to promote religious unity in the Palatinate, the catechism soon became a guide for preaching as well. It is a remarkably warm-hearted and personalized confession of faith, eminently deserving of its popularity among Reformed churches to the present day. (read more)

The Belgic Confession

The Belgic Confession, written in 1561, owes its origin to the need for a clear and comprehensive statement of Reformed faith during the time of the Spanish inquisition in the Lowlands. Guido de Brès, its primary author, was pleading for understanding and toleration from King Philip II of Spain who was determined to root out all Protestant factions in his jurisdiction. Hence, this confession takes pains to point out the continuity of Reformed belief with that of the ancient Christian creeds, as well as to differentiate it from Catholic belief (on the one hand), and from Anabaptist teachings (on the other).

The Canons of Dort

The Canons of Dort come from an international synod of Reformed people held in Dordtrecht, Netherlands, in 1618-19. While the synod accomplished many other things as well, one of its main purposes was to adjudicate a theological controversy (Arminianism) concerning the way in which believers receive the benefit of Christ. The canons, therefore, are polemic in purpose, articulating Calvinistic beliefs in direct rebuttal of Arminianism. This confession is a very finely tuned piece of theological writing, ably delineating a biblically Reformed perspective on matters central to Christian life and experience. (read more)

3 Ecumenical Creeds

We embrace the following three historical creeds that were passed down throughout church history that highlight the key points of our one common faith, including such themes as the trinity, the person of Christ, and the work of Christ. We do this in part because we recognize that we are not isolated from the rest of the universal body of Christ, we are connected to God’s people throughout all of history.
