Terre Haute Reformed Presbyterian Church
Part of the
Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America
We are fully committed to the authority of
the Holy Bible as God's inerrant and infallible Word. This means that
we believe in the Triune God: Father, Son & Holy Spirit. We
acknowledge our total inability to save ourselves and, in faith,
depend on the Lord Jesus Christ alone as our Savior. We acknowledge Him as Covenant
Lord in every area of life, and we vow together to advance His
kingdom on the earth.
We believe that God desires His church to set forth a clear statement
of her doctrine supported from Scripture. We therefore accept as our subordinate
standards (i.e. subordinate to the Bible),
Westminster Confession of Faith and the
Shorter Catechisms. In addition to these doctrinal
statements, we adhere to the
of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America, which
is our continuing application of God's Word to modern issues.
We are called Reformed because we profess that system of Christian
truth which recognizes God's sovereignty over all things and man's absolute
dependence on Him for every aspect of life and salvation.
We are called Presbyterian because we adhere to the form of biblical
church government in which the church is governed by ministers and elders
elected by the people but receiving their authority from Christ, and organized
in a series of graded courts the highest of which is a Synod which has
jurisdiction over the whole denomination.
