BELIEFs

What we believe

This is not an exhaustive list, but a simple summary of the basics of our faith and tradition:

  • We believe in one God, who has eternally existed in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who all are 100%, fully God.

  • We believe that God created all that is, including human beings in His own image, and then said that all that He had created was good.

 

  • We believe that sin entered the world through the disobedience of the first man and woman, Adam and Eve. Because of this disobedience, sin has disfigured and distorted everything. Nevertheless, God did not give up on His creation, so, in order to redeem His creation, God took on humanity in the Person of Jesus Christ and lived a perfect life and died a sacrificial death on a cross to free sinners from their sins.

 

  • We believe that all those who believe in Jesus Christ are forgiven of their sins and inheritors of eternal life.

  • We believe that the Bible, sixty-six books written by human authors but inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the ultimate authority for how we should live and think, and that all that is necessary for salvation is found within, and communicated clearly.

  • We believe that the church is all those who have, by grace, been regenerated to come to faith in Jesus Christ, are indwelled by the Holy Spirit and are called to be ministers of reconciliation to a broken world.

 

  • We believe that one day Christ will return and all things will be restored, and all that is broken will be mended. We believe that the Bible is the revelation of all of these truths and the very Word of God.

 

  • We observe two sacraments: Baptism and the Lord's Supper (Communion) which are visible signs of invisible realities.

 

We are a part of the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRCNA), a Protestant and Evangelical denomination that affirms the Three Ecumenical Creeds, (The Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed) and the Three Forms of Unity, (The Heidelberg Catechism, The Belgic Confession, The Canons of Dort), as accurate summaries of Biblical truth.
