Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is inspired by God and is thus entirely trustworthy and without error. The Bible is the ultimate authority and only infallible rule in every area of life.
We believe that the one true God exists in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The three persons exist as one God; the Trinity is beyond comprehension, but he has revealed himself in the Scriptures, equal in substance, essence, and authority, perfectly self-sufficient, free, holy and just, loving and merciful.
We believe that God ordains everything that comes to pass. He is meticulously sovereign over all things, yet his providence does not negate but rather establishes human responsibility.
We believe that because of the sin of the first man, Adam, all mankind is corrupt by nature, dead in sin and subject to the wrath of God. But God determined, by a covenant of grace, that sinners may receive forgiveness and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ, Faith in Christ is the only way of salvation, both in Old and New Testament times. This is the Gospel we proclaim.
We believe that the Son of God took upon himself a human nature in the womb of the virgin Mary, such that the divine and human natures were united in one person. Jesus lived a sinless life and died on the cross, bearing the sins of, and receiving the wrath of God for the elect, all those who trust in him. He rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, where he sits as Lord and will return to judge the world on the last day.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who helps us obey God in and through His Word in life and holiness.
We believe that the Westminster Standards contain a clear and systematic summary and expression of what the Bible teaches.
We believe that the Presbyterian form of church government, in which leadership is by presbyteries and a plurality of elders, is the best articulation of what is in Scripture.
We believe that the goal of life is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, that the church is gifted with a diversity of gifts for the sake of building one another in love and holiness, and that it is the task of the Church to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
