Ephesians 2: 4,5
But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ - by grace you have been saved

We believe that the Holy Bible is the infallible, inerrant Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit. God uses his Word to make himself known to us and to teach us how to live as his children in the church and the world.
We subscribe to three early Christian creeds which summarize some of the key doctrines taught in the Bible. These were formulated in the first 500 years after Christ's death.
As a result of the great Reformation in the 16th century, we also subscribe to three Reformed confessions known as the Three Forms of Unity, which give more extensive summaries of the Word of God.
