God and His Word
At Grace Covenant Church, we worship the one true God, the supreme being, eternally existing in three persons, who has created all things and who reveals himself to us in the holy Bible.
We believe the Bible is the true and authoritative Word of God. The Bible alone is “the only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience” (1689 LBC 1.1), and “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16).
Our Confession of Faith
We hold to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith as a representative summary of our doctrinal beliefs. While the Confession is not equal to or above the Scriptures, it provides us with assistance in controversy and serves as an instrument of edification and instruction.
“This ancient document is the most excellent epitome of the things most surely believed among us.
It is an excellent, though not inspired, expression of the teaching of those Holy Scriptures by which all confessions are to be measured. We hold to the humbling truths of God's sovereign grace in the salvation of lost sinners. Salvation is through Christ alone and by faith alone.”
