What do we believe?
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Word of God, the only infallible rule for faith and life.
We believe in the one living and true God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as revealed in the Scriptures.
We believe that all mankind is fallen and in a condition of sin and misery; and that left in such a condition, mankind is out of communion with God, under His wrath and curse, and is liable to all the miseries of this life, to death itself, and to the pains of hell forever.
We believe that the only hope of salvation for mankind from such an estate of sin and misery is found in the Lord Jesus Christ—by His righteous life, wrath-satisfying death on the cross, and vindicating resurrection from the dead.
We believe that a person is only saved by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone.
We believe that a follower of Jesus Christ is one who repents of his/her sin; confesses his/her guilt and helplessness as a sinner against God; professes Jesus Christ, Son of God, as his/her Saviour and Lord; and dedicates oneself to His service, endeavoring to forsake all sin, and to conform his/her life to Christ’s teaching and example.
We believe that a Christian grows in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ by diligently reading the Bible, engaging in private prayer, keeping the Lord’s Day, regularly attending the worship services, and observing the appointed sacraments.
We believe it is the Christian’s calling to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness in all the relationships of life, to faithfully perform his/her whole duty as a true servant of Jesus Christ, and to seek to win others to Him.
We believe that a Christian’s faithful walk with Christ is only accomplished in humble reliance upon His grace, as the believer desires to give his/her account with joy at the Last Great Day?
We believe in and hold to the system of doctrine and manner of worship described in substance in the Constitution of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, which most notably contains the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Reformed Presbyterian Testimony.
