Our Beliefs

Above all, our faith is centred in Christ. Every need of ours finds its answer in Jesus Christ.

The final authority in the Reformed faith is Holy Scripture, the living Word of God, spoken to everyone through the Holy Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit takes the Word of God and makes it real and actual in our lives. This has always been and will always be the authentic wellspring of Reformed faith.

The following confessions and creeds are statements of Reformed beliefs:

    Three historic documents:
  • the Belgic Confession
  • the Heidelberg Catechism
  • the Canons of Dort
    The denomination has recently adopted:
  • the Belhar Confession
    Three historic creeds:
  • the Apostles' Creed
  • the Nicene Creed
  • the Athanasian Creed

Our Song of Hope was approved by the Reformed Church in America's General Synod in 1978 as "a statement of the church's faith for use in its ministry of witness, teaching, and worship."

These documents are available at the RCA website: Creeds and Confessions.
