As Christians we are unreservedly committed to the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the divinely inspired Word of God. We accept the Bible as the only infallible rule of faith and life.
We believe, in broad summary, in the one sovereign, triune God; that he created the world out of nothing; that he created humankind in his image, in communion with him; that our first parents, Adam and Eve, broke that communion by sinning against God, and earned eternal punishment for all of humanity; that in grace God responded to that sin by establishing a covenant to send his Son, Jesus Christ, to save his people from their sins; that Jesus came, died in the place of sinners, and earned eternal life for all who believe in him; and that Jesus was resurrected to life, ascended into heaven, and will come again to judge the world and receive into the presence of God forever all who have believed in him. We rejoice that our full salvation is secured by Christ. Salvation is not because of what we do; it is all by God's free grace alone, received by faith alone in Jesus Christ alone and grounded in his work on our behalf. In short, we are biblical, coventantal, and reformed.
We confess the ecumenical creeds of the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed each Sunday.
