What We Believe

We call ourselves Christians because we are followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he is the centre of human history.

  1. Scripture

       Reformed Christians have a high view of Scripture. We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible authoritative Word of God. Inspired – God himself speaking by his Holy Spirit through human authors. Infallible means that the Scriptures are true and absolutely unfailing in matters of faith and practice. The Bible is true and trustworthy in all that it intends to teach. Authoritative refers to the claim of God’s Word upon believers’ lives. Believers are to live ‘under’ and are called to obey, God’s Word. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

  1. Creation – Fall – Redemption

       God created the world; the world fell into sin; God has redeemed and is redeeming the world through the work of Christ, a redemption that will one day be complete when God creates a new heaven and earth. (Colossians 1: 15 – 20)

  1. Grace

       Grace is the unmerited favour of God toward those who do not deserve it. Grace is the unconditional and freely given love of God to people who can do nothing to earn it but can only accept it as a Gift. Grace is the love of the Father in the parable of the prodigal son that moves him to welcome and accepts the lost son not because the son finally did this or that but simply because the father loved his son unconditionally. Grace is the astounding truth that nothing we do can make God love us more or less. God loves us because He loves us. God loves us because he is rich in love. (Ephesians 2: 8 – 10)

  1. Covenant Christian Reformed Church in North America

       The concept of Covenant – God binding himself to his people in promise and commitment – is a rich concept for understanding God’s saving activity today. In worship, God renews his covenant promise to us, and we renew our covenant vows to God. The Lord’s Supper is a sign of Gods’ new covenant. In baptism God promises to be faithful to our children. Fellow members of the church make promises to God and to another. (Jeremiah 31: 31 – 34)

  1. Common Grace

       God’s common grace, different from his saving grace, refers to that attitude of divine favour given to all humanity; believers and unbelievers. The teaching of common grace has many implications for how Christians live and serve in the world. God’s common grace is a model of grace that Christians should embody not just within the church and toward believers but in the world and toward all people. Common grace encourages believers to develop positive points of contact with unbelievers as they live in the world together. (Matthew 5: 43 – 48)
