Doctrinal Commitments

Biblical

At Providence, we believe the Bible is the infallible and inerrant Word of God and, therefore, has the final say concerning what we are to believe and how we are to live. Because of this, we are committed to hearing God’s Word sung, read and preached in worship every Lord’s Day in order that God’s people may grow. As those redeemed of the Lord, we believe it is our joyous obligation to place our lives under the authority of God’s Word and we endeavor, in full reliance upon the grace of God, to bring “every thought captive” to the obedience of Christ our Lord. And yet, we know that we fail to live up to God’s standard in thought, word and deed. Therefore, we rejoice that we can hear the good news that Christ died for sinners every week.

Covenantal

To be a Reformed church means we are a Covenantal. Throughout the Scriptures God has related to His people by means of covenants, the heart of which can be summarized by the oft repeated scriptural promise, “I will be your God and you will be my people.” In these covenants God was not only pleased to be a God to individuals, but he promised to be a God to believers and to their children (Gen 17:7, Acts 2:39). Because families and children are very important to God, we seek to make them of great importance in our ministry at Providence Church.

Confessional

At Providence, we are committed to the godly heritage provided for us in the Protestant Reformation. We are committed to this heritage not merely because it is historical but mainly because we have found it to be thoroughly Biblical. We confess, along with those who have gone before us, that the Bible teaches (Sola Scriptura) that our salvation is by grace alone (Sola Gratia) through faith alone (Sola Fide) by Christ alone (Solus Christus) for the glory of God alone (Soli Deo Gloria)!
