The Reformers like Martin Luther and John Calvin fervently prayed and bravely acted to keep the Christian faith true to the Bible.  In the same spirit:

WE BELIEVE the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, inerrant in the original writings, and of supreme and ultimate authority in faith and life (Deut. 12:32; Rev. 22:18-19; 2 Tim. 3:15; 2 Pet. 1:21; 2Jn 10).

BibleWE BELIEVE there is one God, who is one single essence in whom there are three persons, eternally distinct: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Gen. 1:2; Matt. 28:19; Jn 10:30).

WE BELIEVE that God created humans good and in His image, with freedom of choice; that rebelling against the Creator God, our first ancestors sinned and thereby suffered the consequence of not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human beings are, therefore, sinful from birth; and that all of the suffering and evil in the world is rooted in this sin (Gen. 1:26-27,30; Gen. 3 ; Gen. 6:5,8:21; Isa. 53:6; Rom.5:18-19; Ps. 51:5).

Saved by GraceWE BELIEVE that all people are fallen and sinful in nature and therefore are unable to save themselves; that they are justified before God only through faith in the sacrificial death and resurrection of Christ; and that we are saved only by God's grace and through faith alone (Jn 3:16-19, 5:24; Rom. 3:10-18,23; Eph. 2:8-10; Titus 3:5).

CrossWE BELIEVE in the humanity (Jn 1:14) and the deity of Christ (Jn 10:33); His virgin birth (Isa. 7:4; Matt. 1:23; Lk 1:35); His sinless life (Heb. 4:15, 7:26); His healings and miracles (Jn 2:11); His atoning death on the Cross (1 Cor. 15:3; Eph. 1:7; Heb. 2:9); His bodily resurrection (Jn 11:25, 1 Cor. 15:4); His ascension to heaven at the right hand of the Father (Mk 16:19); His personal return to earth in power and glory (Acts 1:11; Rev. 19:11).

A tree is known by its fruitWE BELIEVE in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is changed and nurtured to live a godly life and by whose outward work the Christian is guided and empowered to do all that Christ commands us to do (Rom. 8:9-11; 2 Cor. 3:17-18; Lk 24:45-47;Jn 16:13-15; Acts 1:8, 2:33).

WE BELIEVE that each congregation as well as the Church as a whole is the Body of Christ, having Christ as her Head (Matt. 16:13-20; Eph. 4:15-16), each member being a part of the Body of Christ working together for the Kingdom of God (Rom. 12:3-8; 1 Cor. 12:27).

WE BELIEVE that each believer regardless of race, age, class and gender (Joel 2:28-29; Acts 2:15-21; Gal.3:24-29) is a "priest" (or minister) in God's Kingdom to represent God's message to the world (1Pe.2:9), being the light of the world and the salt of the earth (Mat.5:13-16), carrying out the ministry of Jesus on earth (Mat.28:18-20; Is.61:1-3; Lk4:18-19).
