Beliefs

The Reformed Presbyterian Church is a part of a larger church called the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA).  You can learn more about the RPCNA at http://reformedpresbyterian.org/

The Reformed Presbyterian Church is a confessional church.  That means we believe the Bible is the only rule of faith and obedience.  But we also believe that there are other historical documents that give clear statements of faith and doctrine.  We accept the Westminster Confession of Faith and Larger and Shorter Catechisms as our subordinate standards.  They are supported by the Scriptures and lay out a foundation and framework for understanding the Bible.  For a look at the Constitution of the RPCNA which contains the Westminster standards.  Here is a link to the PDF version of Our Constitution.

Our beliefs are summarized in the following way:

  • The Bible is the Word of God; infallible, inerrant and authoritative for our lives.
  • God is One, existing in three persons:  the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ has saved sinners from death and hopelessness by His life, death, and resurrection.
  • People everywhere are called to turn from their sins, believe in Jesus Christ for salvation and submit to His Lordship.
  • Jesus has ascended into heaven where He now rules at the right hand of the Father.  Individuals, families, churches, and nations should follow Him!
  • Jesus Christ will one day visibly return to earth and every person will stand before Him to account for their life.
  • In Christ your life has meaning, value, and purpose.
