We believe The Apostles' Creed, The Nicene Creed, and The Definition of Chalcedon.

We believe The Holy Scriptures are the infallible rule of faith and practice.

We believe the Word of God teaches that the sacraments are efficacious. 

We believe God is sovereign over all things.

We believe all of Church history matters. 

We believe salvation is from the Lord.

 

We believe Christ alone is the reason and ground any man has been saved, is being saved, and will be saved.

 

We believe the instrument of salvation is faith in Christ.

 

We believe justifying faith is not a dead faith, but a living faith. 

We believe justifying faith is never alone, but works by love. 

We believe we are not saved by anything in us, or anything we've done. 

We believe we are saved by the pure grace of God. 

 

We believe the cheap grace doctrine which is pervasive in the churches ought to be enthusiastically rejected.

 

We believe repentance and obedience to the law of Christ is necessary for any disciple of Christ our Master. 

We believe the proper response to the gospel is a changed heart and changed life.

 

We believe we ought to share the gospel of Christ's life, death, and resurrection to an unbelieving world.

 

We believe Christ did not come to condemn the world, but to save it.

We believe the role of the Holy Spirit has been tragically underestimated and resisted in many historic, confessional, and reformed churches.

 

We believe in the continuation of all the Spirit's gifts as recorded in Holy Scripture.

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit is eager to work supernaturally in the lives of those whom He indwells.

 

We believe the gifts of the Spirit must be eagerly desired and cultivated.

We believe all supernatural phenomena must be assessed by standard and authority of Holy Scripture.

 

We believe the chaos, superficiality, fraud, and neglect of Scripture in certain areas of the Church ought to be firmly rejected.

 

We believe that the folly of men is not a good reason to reject the power of God.

 

We believe the Christian life is a supernatural life. 

We believe that we believe sections on church websites are helpful, but also inadequate.
