DOCTRINAL BELIEFS

WE are a Christian, Protestant, confessional, Presbyterian church of the Orthodox Presbyterian denomination. Each of these descriptions shapes our particular doctrinal statements. We believe that doctrine is important both for the church and the individual. And we'd love for you to take time to familiarize yourself with what we believe.

TO GLORIFY, AND TO ENJOY GOD FOREVER

As a Christian church we confess that there is but one God in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. That these three Persons are equal in being, power, and glory. further we confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became truly man to save his people from Their sins. Our fundamental Christian doctrines are confessed in The Apostles' Creed and The Nicene Creed.

As a protestant church we believe that the scriptures alone are the rule of faith and practice. we further confess that jesus christ is the only head of his church. further we believe the bible clearly teaches that man is justified by faith alone through grace alone in jesus christ alone.

as an orthodox presbyterian church we subscribe to the orthodox presbyterian's book of church order which includes the form of government, the book of discipline, and the directory for the public worship of god.

as a confessional church we subscribe to the westminster confession of faith and the larger and shorter catechisms. While we believe the scriptures alone are inerrant and infallible, we believe these standards are the clearest exposition of what the scriptures teach.
