What does “Reformed” mean?
The “Reformed” in our name refers to our adherence to the biblical principles set down by the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. These principles of the Reformation include:
The five “Solas” (Scripture alone, Grace alone, Faith alone, Christ alone, for the glory of God alone)
God is sovereign over all things. God is in complete control and carries out his own will in creation, providence, and salvation.
Covenant Theology – that from the moment Adam and Eve sinned God established the covenant of grace whereby sinners are saved through faith in the Messiah. The covenant fulfilled in Christ is the full grown form of the covenant that God made with Adam, Abraham, and David.
