Statement of Faith

We uphold the historic Christian faith as expressed in the Apostles’ Creed, and the Nicene Creed. We have arisen from the Reformed Tradition, consequently, we uphold the Westminster Confession of Faith, and do so without prejudice towards the other confessions of the historic Christian faith. We affirm the above to be true in our own words as follows:

  1. We believe there is only one God, the creator and sovereign over all creation. In his essence, he is infinite, eternal and unchangeable in wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness and truth. In his person, he is God in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  2. We believe God has spoken to us through the Bible, the collection of sixty-six books received by the historic Christian church. The Holy Spirit inspired human authors to write these books, and consequently, we hold the entire Bible to be true, not just parts of it; we hold the words to be true, not just the ideas they convey. We submit to the authority of the Bible.
  3. We believe we are sinners through the sin of Adam and Eve, our first parents, and through our own sins. In our sinful state, we are alienated from God and without hope. Our life will end in death and the judgment from God that we deserve, unless we are redeemed by Jesus Christ.
  4. We believe that Jesus Christ our Lord is God in human flesh, true God and true man. He came to redeem us from death and judgment: through his sinless life, his death on our behalf, his resurrection to life, and his inheritance of God’s eternal kingdom.
  5. We believe our redemption from sin and death is through Jesus Christ only. This redemption lies in the forgiveness of our sin, our resurrection from the dead, and our sharing in God’s eternal kingdom. This gift of God, commonly called our salvation, belongs to us when we believe in the person and work of Jesus Christ, and confess that faith in baptism.
  6. We believe the Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin and draws us into God’s Kingdom. He then indwells, sanctifies, illuminates, guides, equips, and empowers us to holy living and service.
  7. We believe that Jesus Christ will return in person to earth when he shall fully realize God’s kingdom. We choose not to make an article of faith from any one of several propositions of how Christ will return.
  8. We believe God’s children express their faith through the community commonly called the “Church.” The local church is a community of believers who meet every Lord’s Day or at other times, for mutual encouragement, and the exercise of the sacraments, which are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
  9. We believe that Christian living must accompany our profession of faith. Christian living is made possible through the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. They include: making disciples of all peoples, the disciplines in Christian living, service to the society at large, especially to the poor, and care for the environment.

How We Relate to Other Christians

We recognize that Christians from different faith traditions have different expressions of our common faith. We encourage that which is common to all true believers while we make allowance for the free expression of different traditions. This website chooses not to link itself to any individual church or denomination, but we willingly host material from Christian writers of different traditions.

How We Relate to Other Religions

We recognize and accept the pluralistic world we live in. We recognize that adherents of other religions can be equally sincere or convicted about their faith as we are of ours. At the same time, the recognition of the right to individual choice does not amount to an affirmation that all religions lead to God. The different religions disagree in all fundamental areas, and it is a logical necessity that they cannot all be right. Following the example of Jesus Christ our Lord, we advocate individual freedom in one’s choice of faith. At the same time, we look forward to the time when Jesus Christ our Lord shall become the Lord of all creation; when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
