We Believe

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and the foundation for our faith and for our lives.  We believe that the most important message in the world is that Jesus is Savior and Lord.

We believe in the Trinity.  The triune God has revealed Himself as one God in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that sin has affected all aspects of life and our only hope is in Jesus Christ.  God has redeemed us by sending us His Son into the world to make atonement for our sin.  Christ died on the cross and rose again three days later, conquering sin and death so that we might have new life in Him.

We believe that salvation is a gift from God, not earned by our works, but freely given by Him.

We believe that in response to His grace, God empowers us through the Holy Spirit for grateful lives of service and love.

We celebrate the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper.  In baptism, whether of a covenant child or someone who comes to faith later in life, God claims us in Christ, marks us as His own, and seals us in God's covenant family.  The water of baptism is a sign of the washing away of our sins through the blood of Jesus and a seal of the renewing work of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  We believe that the Lord's Supper is for anyone who has professed their faith in Christ. The bread and the cup signify the body and blood of Jesus and seal to us His saving work.

Who We Are

Faith CRC is part of a denomination called the Christian Reformed Church.  We call ourselves: 

Christian because we belong to Jesus Christ and want to be His followers. We recognize as fellow-Christians all people who accept the teachings of the Bible as summarized in the Apostles' Creed

Reformed because we’re part of the branch of the Christian church that follows the Reformation, when the church worked to return Christianity to its biblical roots. The biblical, practical truths of the Reformation are often summarized in the Five Solas: Scripture Alone, Faith Alone, Grace Alone, Christ Alone and Glory to God Alone.

Church because God has called us to be a fellowship of His people in the world.

The Christian Reformed Emblem: The triangle represents the Trinity, our belief in the one God we know as three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The cross symbolizes our belief in Jesus Christ’s atoning sacrifice to save us from our sins and to make us His own.
