What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is used by God: that He “makes Himself more clearly and fully known to us by His holy and divine Word as far as is necessary for us in this life, to His glory and our salvation.” (Belgic Confession, Article 2).

Although the Bible takes precedence over all man-made work, we subscribe to a number of Creeds and Confessions:

The Five Solas

The five solas are five Latin phrases that emerged during the Protestant Reformation and summarize the Reformers’ basic theological beliefs in contradistinction to the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church of the day. The Latin word sola means alone” or “only” in English.

The five solas articulate five fundamental beliefs Reformation, pillars which we believe to be essentials of Christian life and practice.


Sola Scriptura
by scripture alone

The Bible is the inspired word of God and is the primary way in which we can learn about our creator and Father.

“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 3:16-17


Sola Fide
by faith alone

Faith is what is needed to be saved: as Paul and Silas testify in Acts 16, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Good works can never make us right with God – because we are inherently sinful, nothing we do is pleasing to God without His help.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16


Sola Gratia
by grace alone

God chooses His people, works faith in their hearts, and ensures that His perfect plan is carried out. It is by His grace alone that we are saved!

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God”  Ephesians 2:8


Solo Christo
through Christ alone

Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, is the only way to salvation – not through anyone else.

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6


Soli Deo Gloria
glory to God alone

God alone deserves our prayers and glory!

“For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.” Romans 11:36
