“If you put these things before the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, being trained in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine that you have followed.”

I Timothy 4:6

What We Believe

Our View of Scripture

The Primary Standard

As the inspired, inerrant, infallible, and comprehensive rule of faith and life for the Christian, the 66 books of the Bible are recognized by Saint Peter Presbyterian Church as the unchallengeable authority and supreme judge to which all religious controversies or creeds, as well as all opinions and regulations of men, must be subordinate.

Our Commitments

In the tradition of the Protestant Reformers, we hold to:

  • The five “solas” of the Reformation: Sola Scriptura, Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Solo Christo, and Soli Deo Gloria
  • The Westminster Standards
  • The preaching of the Word, the exercise of church discipline, and the right celebration of the sacraments.

Our Secondary Standards

We affirm the ecumenical creeds of the church: the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Athanasian Creed, and the Definition of Chalcedon.

We also affirm the secondary standards of the historic Reformation churches: the Westminster Confession of Faith (1647), the Belgic Confession (1561), the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms (1647), the Heidelberg Catechism (1563), and the Canons of Dordt (1619).
