As a Christian Church we believe that:

• the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are God-breathed, inerrant in the original writings, and the supreme and final authority in faith and life.
• there is one God who eternally exists in three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
• Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is true God and true man.
• man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.
• the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood.
• in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, His ascension into heaven, and His present life there for us as High Priest and Advocate.
• in the personal and victorious return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
• all who are born again of the Holy Spirit, and repent and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, become children of God.
• in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.

As a Reformed Church we believe that:

• the Bible is the perfectly true Word of God and the only authority for all of life.
• salvation is only by the gracious choosing of the Father, the gracious sacrificing of the Son and the gracious regenerating of the Holy Spirit.
• a person receives salvation only through a faith given by God, irrespective of any past or future quality of that person.
• the sacrament of baptism is for believers and also for their infant children, administered by pouring or sprinkling.
• the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is for baptized believers who are publicly repentant, professing and committed to Christ and His Church.

As a Presbyterian Church:

• we believe in the form of church government using elders: men qualified by God’s Word, acceptable to the congregation and accountable to Christ, the Head of the Church.
• we use the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms as faithful summaries of the teachings of the Bible.
