reading Scripture seeks to present the Bible in a manner consistent with the historic Reformed Christian faith. This is because we believe that the Reformed faith most accurately represents the teachings of Christ and His apostles.
Even so, we recognize that Christ’s church is broader than our tradition and includes many who do not subscribe to uniquely Reformed beliefs. We believe that true Christians may be found in a wide variety of Christian denominations, even including churches where, for one reason or another, we might least expect to find them.
We will from time to time present information on many different points of view, and sometimes feature content from people outside the Reformed tradition. This is because Christians from many differing backgrounds have made valuable contributions to our understanding of Scripture.
On the other hand, sometimes we will present differing viewpoints in order to evaluate them according to the standard of biblical teaching as we understand it. We do this because we believe important issues are at stake for Christians. While we will always strive to treat each point of view fairly, we remain committed to the system of teaching represented in the standard Reformed confessions of faith, which are as follows:
The Three Forms of Unity
The Westminster Standards
- The Westminster Confession of Faith
- The Westminster Larger Catechism
- The Westminster Shorter Catechism
As Reformed Christians, we do not believe that any creed, confession, or catechism possesses authority equal to the Bible’s, even those produced by Reformed churches. We take it for granted that they are imperfect representations of the system of teaching found in Scripture, and that each of them are subject to correction from the Bible.
Nevertheless, since we are committed to the Reformed faith, we also believe that Reformed confessions and catechisms are generally faithful representations of biblical teaching. We may differ with a particular confession or catechism on a particular point, but being Reformed means subscribing to their major theological positions.
In similar manner, Reformed Christians demonstrate their solidarity with true Christians of all centuries by subscribing to the following Ecumenical or Universal Creeds of the Christian faith:
