We are fully committed to the authority of the Holy Bible as God's inerrant and infallible Word. This means that we believe in the Triune God: Father, Son & Holy Spirit. We acknowledge our total inability to save ourselves and, in faith, depend on the Lord Jesus Christ alone as our Savior. We acknowledge Him as Covenant Lord in every area of life, and we vow together to advance His kingdom on the earth.

We believe that God desires His church to set forth a clear statement of her doctrine supported from Scripture. We therefore accept as our subordinate standards (i.e. subordinate to the Bible), The Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger & Shorter Catechisms. In addition to these doctrinal statements, we adhere to the Testimony of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, which is our continuing application of God's Word to modern issues.

We believe that God's Word clearly sets forth how He is to be worshiped. The reading and exposition of the Word of God are the central focus of our worship. Our musical praise employs God's Word only, making use of the Bible's divinely inspired Book of Psalms. In keeping with the New Testament church's directive of heart worship, we sing without the aid of musical instruments.

We are called Reformed because we profess that system of Christian truth which recognizes God's sovereignty over all things and man's absolute dependence on Him for every aspect of life and salvation.

We are called Presbyterian because we adhere to the form of biblical church government in which the church is governed by ministers and elders elected by the people but receiving their authority from Christ, and organized in a series of graded courts the highest of which is a Synod which has jurisdiction over the whole denomination.
