CORAM DEO REFORMATION CHURCH is a member of the United Reformed Churches in North America.
We are UNITED around the Bible, the written revelation of God's Word, that reveals all that we need to know unto salvation and life. We confess and believe that it bears witness to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only Saior and hope for sinners.
We are REFORMED in our faith and practice. This means we are a confessional church, founded on the Scriptures alone. We believe the teaching of the Bible is faithfully summarized in the Reformed Confessions: The Belgic Confession, Heidelberg Catechism, and Canons of Dort. These confessions, together called "The Three Forms of Unity," unite us to believers of the past as well as today, and are a source of comfort, guidance, and strength. they also serve as a guide and a tool for the instruction of both adults and youth.
Our minister and all our officers are sworn to uphold these confessions, and all our members agree to them as a faithful summary of Scripture in the first of their membership vows:
Do you heartily believe the doctrine contained in the Old and the New
Testament, and in the articles of the Christian faith, and taught in this
Christian church, to be the true and complete doctrine of salvation, and
do you promise by the grace of God steadfastly to continue in the
We believe that we come into a saving relationship with God only because of His gracious work in our hearts and there fore He deserves our praise in every area of life.
We are a CHURCH belonging to the one holy universal and apostolic Church instituted by the Lord Jesus Christ for the ministry of the Word (Preaching of the Law and the Gospel), the ministry of the sacraments (Baptism and the Lord's Supper), and the shepherding of God's people by the pastors and elders. As a historic Christian Church we hold dear and profess the Apostle's Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.
