We believe that the Bible is the unique Word of God, and that it teaches us who God is, who we are, and how we are to relate to God. Rather than distinguishing ourselves from other churches, we like to emphasize what unites us with the Church throughout history and around the world, especially the central tenets of the faith as found in the Holy Scriptures. The Apostles’ Creed is an excellent statement of faith from the ancient Church, a summary of essential beliefs about God and the Gospel that Christians hold in common:
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell. The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
As a congregation of The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), the Westminster Standards serve as a more thorough and official statement of what we believe, consisting of a Confession of Faith and two Catechisms. The Standards do not take the place of the Scriptures in our lives, but we believe they are the best interpretation of the Scriptures with regard to our great salvation. Those who would become Elders or Deacons in our church must be able to affirm them with a good conscience.
