What a church teaches has eternal consequences. Seven Reformed principles—together with our critical beliefs, core principles, and a central purpose—comprise our theology of ministry. What does it mean to be Reformed?

1. It means to be Protestant, whereby the Five Solas of the Protestant Reformation are affirmed.

2. It means to be biblical, whereby a high view of the sovereignty of God is affirmed.

3. It means to be Calvinistic, whereby God is seen as the author of salvation from beginning to end.

4. It means to be creedal, whereby the great creeds of the historic, orthodox Church are affirmed.

5. It means to be confessional, whereby the confessions of the evangelical Church are affirmed.

6. It means to be evangelistic, whereby the Great Commission of the Church is preached and practiced.

7. It means to be evangelical, whereby a distinctly Christian worldview permeates all of life.
