Our Beliefs"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful" - Hebrews 10:23 ESV
A Brief Summary of Our Beliefs
What is Reformation?
The Five ‘Solas’ of the Reformation
Sola Scriptura—Scripture Alone. The Bible is our only infallible rule of faith and life (not Scripture plus Papal authority, church tradition, or creeds and confessions). It alone can bind man’s conscience.
Sola Fide—Faith Alone. We are justified (declared and accepted as righteous) before a Holy God by the righteousness of Christ alone, received solely through the instrumentality of faith.
Sola Gratia—Grace Alone. We are saved through faith alone in Christ alone by grace alone—our own works contributing nothing. The gospel is not a product for health and wealth, or self-esteem, or something that is true because it works. It is the message of rescue from the power and curse of sin and the wrath of a holy God, and the gift of forgiveness and eternal life and adoption by a loving Father—because of sheer, unmerited grace!
Solus Christus—Christ Alone. In contrast to the secularization of the church in our day, the Christ and the cross are central! Salvation is accomplished by the mediatorial work of Christ alone—His sinless life and substitutionary atonement alone are sufficient for our justification and reconciliation with the Father.
Soli Deo Gloria—God’s Glory Alone. God alone saves; for His glory; and the great purpose and the great good for man is to know just that (Rom. 11:36: For of Him and through Him and to Him are all things, to whom be glory forever. Amen.)!
