Christ Reformed Church
A new reformed church in Washington, DC

 

What do you believe?

Christ Reformed is a confessional church, founded on the Scriptures alone. We believe the teaching of the Bible is faithfully summarized in the ecumenical creeds and our Reformed Confessions:  The Belgic Confession, Heidelberg Catechism, and Canons of Dort. We celebrate our confessions, together called “The Three Forms of Unity,” and look to them as a source of comfort, guidance, and strength. They also serve as a guide and a tool for the instruction of both adults and youth.


Our minister and all our officers are sworn to uphold these confessions, and all our members agree to them as a faithful summary of Scripture in the first of their membership vows:


Do you heartily believe the doctrine contained in the Old and the New Testament, and in the articles of the Christian faith, and taught in this Christian church, to be the true and complete doctrine of salvation, and do you promise by the grace of God steadfastly to continue in this profession?
