We are a community of Christian believers, who are in association with John Knox Presbyterian Church. We are committed to:

  • The Bible as our only rule of faith and practice. It is inerrant, infallible, inspired by God in its original autographs, and preserved by Him for His people throughout the ages.
  • The Westminster Standards, which include the doctrines of grace, which are known by the acronym TULIP.
  • The preaching of The Word, the exercise of Church discipline, and the right celebration of the sacraments.

HEIDELBERG CATECHISM QUESTION OF THE WEEK

Q 12 - According to God’s righteous judgment
we deserve punishment
both now and in eternity:
how then can we escape this punishment
and return to God’s favor?

A. God requires that his justice be satisfied.1
Therefore the claims of this justice
must be paid in full,
either by ourselves or by another.2
