We are a bible believing confessional church

To be a Bible-believing church is to believe that the Bible alone is the inspired and infallible Word of God. Our church is “built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone” (Ephesians 2:20). “We believe that this Holy Scripture contains the will of God completely and that everything one must believe to be saved is sufficiently taught in it” (Belgic Confession, Article 7). Click here to learn more on what we believe about the Bible.

Covenant Reformed Church is a confessional church, founded on the Scriptures alone. We believe the teaching of the Bible is faithfully summarized in the ecumenical creeds and our Reformed Confessions: The Belgic ConfessionHeidelberg Catechism, and Canons of Dort. We celebrate our confessions, together called “The Three Forms of Unity,” and we look to them as a source of comfort, guidance, and strength. They also serve as a guide and a tool for the instruction of both adults and youth.

Covenant Reformed Church is a member of the United Reformed Churches in North America.
