What We Believe

We are a Christian congregation. In other words we believe in what unites Christian congregations around the world, things like: the Bible is the Word of God, the Trinity, that Jesus is fully God and fully man, one person with two distinct natures, we believe in his virgin birth, atoning death on the cross for sinners, his resurrection and ascension, and in Holy Spirit. Along these lines we subscribe to the early Christian Creeds such as the Apostle’s Creed.

We believe that the doors to the church and the doors to church membership are as wide open as the gospel. Anyone may attend our worship services regardless of race, religion, creed, or corrupt lifestyle. We are sinners in need of a Savior and all sinners are welcome here.

Membership is open to all who credibly profess their faith in Jesus Christ, denounce their sin, and desire to live by grace as becomes a follower of Christ, which includes participation in this church body to which you are becoming a member.

However, the leadership of the church, both locally, regionally and nationally is Reformed and Presbyterian, subscribing, by and large, to the Westminster Standards and the BCO. The reason for this is two-fold. First, and foremost, we believe the system of doctrine found in the historic Reformed and Presbyterian faith is Biblical. But the second reason is quite practical, “if the leadership corps disagrees on fundamentals, the flock will be confused, and painful division will result” (David Hall, A Manual For Officer Training, 9). The Lord Jesus does not want confused and restless sheep (Psalm 23).

No matter where you are on your journey of faith – maybe you’re not sure there is a God, maybe you’re a five-point Calvinist – we would love to have you visit and get to know us.
