What We Believe

What We Believe

Our Beliefs

The short answer:
Reformation Presbyterian believes the Bible, all of it, because we believe it is the very Words of God committed wholly unto writing and contain the only way unto salvation through Jesus Christ, alone.

The longer answer is that we believe:

  • In the inerrant and infallible Word of God, the Bible, as the final authority for all of faith, life and practice
  • In one God, eternally existing in three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  • In Jesus Christ, truly God and truly man, born of the Virgin Mary
  • In salvation from sin and its power only by faith in Jesus Christ who died on the Cross in the place of His people
  • In the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ on the third day and His ascension into heaven where He rules over all history and all lives with the Father and the Spirit
  • In the work and witness of the church to the gospel of Christ’s saving work in our community and around the world
  • In God’s love extended through covenant relationship in the church which Jesus Christ is building in this world.

The above is a brief summary of biblical truth taught in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms and historically found in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. These are our secondary standards, subordinate to the Holy Scriptures.
