The word “REFORMED” comes from the historical time of the “Reformation”, when people like Martin Luther and John Calvin sought to reform the church of their day to be more faithful to God’s Word. During this period, there were five latin phrases used to describe the movement that later gave birth to a reformed understanding of the Christian faith. These were:
Sola gratia: We are saved by GRACE alone.
… Our salvation is an unearned gift from God for Jesus’ sake.
Sola fide: We are made right with God by FAITH alone.
… We are justified, or “made right” with God through faith, not by works.
Sola scriptura: We find ultimate truth in SCRIPTURE alone.
… The Old & New Testaments of the Bible are the only inspired Word of God.
Solus Christus: Our hope is found in CHRIST alone.
… Jesus Christ is the only mediator, or “bridge”, between God and mankind.
Soli Deo gloria: Glory and praise for our salvation are given to GOD alone.
… We obey and serve God out of gratitude for all that He is and all He has done.
Above all, our faith is centered in Christ . Every need of ours finds its answer in Jesus Christ.
The final authority in the Reformed faith is Holy Scripture, the living Word of God, spoken to everyone through the Holy Spirit of God. The Holy Spirit takes the Word of God and makes it real and actual in our lives. This has always been and will always be the authentic wellspring of Reformed faith.
The following confessions and creeds are statements of Reformed beliefs:
We believe in one God, revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is the creator of all and ruler of the universe. God, our perfect heavenly Father, loves and cares for all of us. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:31, Colossians 1:16-18).
We believe that we have sinned deliberately choosing not to follow God’s will thereby breaking our relationship with God. (Romans 3:23).
We believe that God, by grace alone, provides a relationship with Himself through the life, death, and resurrection of His Son, Jesus. Jesus is Savior to all who believe in Him. (Romans 5:8-11, I Peter 3:18, John 3:16).
We believe that God sent us the Holy Spirit to empower us to live more like Jesus Christ. (Romans 5:5).
We believe that as children of God, we are promised eternal life with God in heaven. (John 14:1-3).
We believe that the Church is the spiritual body of believers in Christ whose purpose is doing God’s will. (Ephesians 5:25, I Corinthians 1:2).
We believe that the Bible was written by persons inspired by God and is the record of God’s revelation of Himself to us. It is our ultimate authority for our faith and living. (2 Timothy 3:16).
