SUMMARY

We believe in ONE triune God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - who is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable in His being, wisdom power, holiness, justice, and truth. 

We believe Jesus Christ is God's incarnate Son, fully Divine and fully man, who died in our place for our sins as our redeemer.  We believe He was raised again from the dead on the third day and ascended bodily up into heaven where He now sits as Lord over all at the Father's right hand.

We believe all men are by nature dead in sin and live under the wrath of God.  God saves us by His grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.

We believe the Bible is the only inerrant and infallible Word of God.

As Christians, our chief end is to glorify God by enjoying Him forever, endeavoring to worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, and to order our hearts and our lives according to His Word.

We believe in the Christian family as the basic building block of the visible Church, and we baptize our children as a sign and a seal of their membership in this covenant community.  We believe our children need to put their faith in Jesus and repent from their sins in order to be saved.

We believe the Church is an essential part of God's plan for communicating grace to sinners.  Outside this body, there is no ordinary way to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.


CREED

We all have a creed.  Everyone believes something about everything.  Writing these creeds down, we believe, makes a powerful, tangible, and definitive statement - a standard by which we can measure our thinking, speaking, and living for God.  Our creed is the historic Westminster Confession of Faith and the Shorter and Larger Catechisms of the Westminster Assembly.  Unlike Scripture, these documents are neither inerrant nor are they the rule of our faith and practice at Christ Covenant.  The Bible alone holds this cherished position in our hearts and minds.  However, we find them to be a helpful summary of what we believe the Bible teaches about almost everything.
