Why is “Reformed” included in our name?
Reformed has its origin in the 16th Century Reformation, at which time the Church was reformed by a returning to the Bible as the rule for all of life. We seek also to be continually Reforming, that is, continually turning and returning to God’s Word to direct our lives.
Creeds & Confessions
The main teachings of the Bible have been summarized in documents called creeds or confessions. Of the many creeds that have appeared throughout the history of the Christian church, we have chosen to adopt three creeds and three confessions as our own. We consider these creeds to be faithful summaries of the Word of God. As human documents, however, they possess human authority. Only the Word of God possesses divine authority. The contents of our creeds and confessions are always subject to and to be tested by the standard of the Word of God.
