In this section of the website, we must tell you what we believe, so that you may place us in the appropriate ecclesiastical box. We love ecclesiastical boxes, and we love when they are next to each other spilling their contents, like a rummage sale gone wrong. So, place us in a box, but that doesn’t mean you know who we are, which means you will just have to come and visit us!
For those who like theology (rest assured, we do too), here are some things you should know about us:
- We affirm the verbal, plenary inspiration, inerrancy and infallibility of the Word of God.
- We affirm the historic creeds of the Christian Church (the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Athanasian Creed, and the Definition of Chalcedon).
- We affirm the Westminster Standards.
- We affirm the preaching of God’s Word, the exercise of church discipline, and the right administration of the Sacraments.
We are a family of families bound to one another in the cleansing blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. We confess our sins truly believing the forgiveness of the Father through His Son. We love fiercely those God has given to us. We rejoice richly in the life He has granted to us. We are full of hope for the future as we live under the reign of Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit. We would greatly enjoy meeting you and welcoming you to our fellowship!
