We believe there is one holy, universal Church which has existed
from the beginning of the world and will exist to the end of times.
It is gathered and upheld by the Lord God, through His Son, Jesus
Christ. We further believe that the marks by which the Church is
known are these:
1. The pure preaching of the gospel
2. The pure administration of the sacraments
(Baptism and Lord's Supper)
3. The practice of church discipline,
which includes preserving and promoting harmony and unity within
the Church as well as keeping all members obedient to God.
In short, all things must be managed according to the Word of God
and all things contrary must be rejected.
Historically, we trace our roots to the time of the Reformation
in the 16th century.
In addition to following the three ecumenical
creeds, we adhere to the following confessions:
1. The Belgic Confession of Faith
2. The Heidelberg Catechism
3. The Canons of Dort
