About Us

Our Beliefs

The Word Of God

We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and infallible Word. Through the Bible and the Holy Spirit, God works repentance and faith in the hearts of His children. Our spiritual roots are in the Reformation, when God used men like Martin Luther and John Calvin to bring the church back to His Word.

Adam and Eve were our first parents and rebelled against God. We are all guilty of this sin and deserve eternal punishment. Each one of us is corrupt and we cannot seek God or please Him on our own.

“There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God." Romans 3:10-11

However, God chose to have mercy on us and sent His one and only Son to pay for our sins. Jesus Christ was able to serve God perfectly and make payment for us. By confessing our sins to God and believing in Jesus, we can have forgiveness of sins and live eternally with God.

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:23

It is out of thankfulness that we strive to live in a way that is pleasing to God. Instructions for holy living are given in God’s Word. The Holy Spirit also works in our hearts to guide us on the straight and narrow path.

"Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God,- this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is - His good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:1-2

Confessions

As a Reformed Church, we also use various confessions, which are summaries of the teachings of the Bible. These confessions don’t replace the Bible, but are an aid in understanding the Bible. They can be divided into two groups: 

Ecumenical Confessions

The Ecumenical Confessions were all written during the first 6 centuries A.D. They include:

Reformed Confessions

The Reformed Confessions include:

  • The Belgic Confession: states in a positive way what we believe about God; man and his fall into sin; Jesus Christ and Salvation; the Church and Sacraments; civil government
  • The Heidelberg Catechism: uses a question and answer format to explain the basics of the Christian faith
  • The Canons of Dort: stresses the sovereignty of God in our salvation, emphasizing it is all God’s work; clearly teaches the fine points of the Reformed faith
