Doctrinal StandardsRedeemer Reformed Church as a United Reformed Church holds to the ecumenical creeds (Apostle's, Nicene, and Athanasian). The true Christian church has always stated clearly what it believed the Bible to teach. It did so through creeds and confessions. Creeds such as The Apostles, The Nicene and The Athanasian date back to the first centuries after Christ’s Ascension and are especially devoted to stating the biblical doctrine of the Trinity. God is one God, subsisting in three Persons: God the Father our Creator, God the Son our Redeemer, and God the Holy Spirit our Renewer. We along with other Christian churches receive these as our official church standards.
In addition, we hold to four more detailed confessions dating back to the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. They are the Heidelberg Catechism (HC; 1563), the Belgic Confession (BC; 1561), the Canons of Dort (CD; 1618‑19) and the Westminster Confession (WC; 1646). We regard them as faithful summaries of the teaching of the Bible. We require our church leaders to teach and defend them, and to promise to teach nothing that conflicts with them. We will gladly make them available to you as a complete statement of our faith. However, as an introduction to our beliefs, let us now identify some major themes which these confessions emphasize, and then give a more concise explanation of some specific teachings on which they elaborate.
