Our Confessional Faith
The Westminster Standards
Our denomination is grounded upon not only the Word of God, as the revelation of God to man, the only authority for life and godliness, we also admit that we must say something about the Scriptures. The Bible is not only be to believed, but also interpreted faithfully. The Westminster Confession of Faith, along with the other documents composed during the Westminster Assembly of the 1640′s forms the foundation for what we believe and why we do what we do.
