As a congregation of the United Reformed Churches in North America (URCNA), we confess Jesus Christ as the only Savior and the Sovereign Lord over all of life, and are fully committed to the Bible in its entirety as the Word of God written, without error in all its parts, and to its teaching as set forth in the historic Reformed standards (the Three Forms of Unity) and in the Ecumenical Creeds.
The Three Forms of Unity
The “Three Forms of Unity” is a collective name for the ‘Belgic’ Confession of Faith, the Canons of Dort, and the Heidelberg Catechism, which are accepted as official statements of doctrine by many of the Reformed churches, including the URCNA.
The Ecumenical Creeds
The “Ecumenical Creeds” is an umbrella term used in the western church to refer to the Nicene Creed, the Apostles’ Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. These creeds are accepted by almost all mainstream Christian denominations in the western church, including the Reformed, Roman Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran churches. A creed by definition is a summary or statement of what one believes; the word originates from the Latin credo meaning “I Believe.”
