Our Faith

We believe the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God, the only infallible rule for faith and life. We affirm three creeds - The Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed - as eccumenical expressions of the Christian faith. We also affirm three confessions, the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Cannons of Dort - as historic Reformed expressions of the Christian faith, whose doctrines fully agree with the Word of God.

Along with these historic creeds and confessions, we recognize the witness of Our World Belongs to God: A Contemporary Testimony adopted by synod as a current Reformed expresion of the Christian faith, and the Belhar Confession , adopted by synod as an ecumenical faith declaration.
