Our Confession

Built on the Protestant Tradition

Our theological distinctives arise from the Protestant Reformation in the 1500s. We strongly hold to God’s sovereign grace and His covenantal dealings with man. We are reformed by conviction, a people who stand in a great line of people who have gone before us. As with our forefathers, we believe in the full inspiration and authority of Scripture, salvation by grace alone, the regulative principle of worship, the priesthood of believers, the eternal security of the elect, and more.

We believe the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith (see below) presents an accurate, clear, and faithful understanding of biblical doctrine. Having been formed by man, however, this document is not our ultimate authority, for that authority is found in Scripture alone. But as a confessional church we have a document that spells out exactly what we believe.

A brief summary of our distinctives, or what it means to be under the teaching at our church, may be seen in the following theological snapshot:

Hermeneutics: Covenant Theology
Soteriology: Particular Redemption
Ecclesiology: Family-Integrated, Confessional (1689 LBCF)
Eschatology: Two elders are Amillennial and one is Postmillenial
Ethics: Theonomic
Worship: Regulative Principle
Counseling: Nouthetic.
