We affirm the historic creeds.
Not sure what that means? No problem! That's what we're here for. The Church in the first few centuries A.D. had to battle against a lot of wrong ideas about who Jesus is and they put together "creeds" which clearly articulated who the Bible teaches Jesus is. These were adopted by the Church and have served as summaries for what Christians have beleived for almost two-thousand years.

We affirm the Westminster Standards.
Not sure what that means either? Don't worry about it! Seriously. Again, that's what we're here for. The "Westminster Standards" are summaries of what Christians believe about God, the Bible, human beings, what the Church is, how we can be saved, and how we ought to live as God's creatures. When we say "We affirm the Westminster Standards," we are NOT saying these documents are equal to the Bible or that they in any way serve as a replacement for the Bible. What we mean when we say "We affirm..." is that we belive they are accurate representations of what the Bible teaches and we have adopted them as such.
