Sometimes called the Five Solas of the Reformation, these five points summarize what makes a Reformed church different.
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of the true and living God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe that the only way sinners can draw near to a holy God is to have their sins pardoned and receive the imputed righteousness of Christ. Not even the best of our works can merit this. Justification is by faith alone and is a once-for-all act.
We believe in the sovereignty of God in salvation and all things. Because of sin, our hearts are dead. God must give us the grace to put our faith in him.
We believe that the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, is about Jesus Christ – the only hope of salvation. Therefore, we preach Christ and not moralism, legalism, or politics. Only when we focus on Christ can we walk worthy of the calling with which we have been called.
For God’s Glory Alone
We believe that God – Father, Son, and Spirit – is sovereign over all things, including our salvation. He is King, and so it is our highest goal to glorify and enjoy him in all that we do.
