what we believe

A simple explanation of the good news of Jesus can be found here

Here’s a summary of what we believe:

The divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture, as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.

The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

The conception of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit and his birth of the virgin Mary.

Redemption from the guilt, power and penalty of sin only through the sacrificial death (as our Representative and Substitute) of Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Son of God.

The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective to the individual sinner, granting him/her repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ.

The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.

The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, as judge of all people.

The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.

The elders of Christ Church agree that the Westminster Confession of Faith is an excellent statement of the Reformed understanding of the gospel of Christ and the doctrines that undergird, protect and adorn it.

Our leaders are also in substantial agreement with other creeds and confessional statements of the historic Christian church, including the Apostles Creed, the Thirty Nine Articles and the Heidelberg Catechism.
