Our Commitments

Our Confession & Doctrine

In addition to the more widely known historic ecumenical Christian creeds such as The Apostles’ Creed and The Nicene Creed, our congregation's leadership also subscribes to a set of historic creeds and doctrinal statements known as The Westminster Standards.

There are three leading documents in these Standards: the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Westminster Shorter Catechism, and the Westminster Larger Catechism.

The leadership of Immanuel Presbyterian Church embraces these Standards as faithful summaries of the Bible’s teaching in the areas and on the subjects they address. Agreement with these Standards is not required for membership at Immanuel, but it is for those who serve as the church’s officers, ordained as elders or deacons.

We treasure the heritage of Biblical and theological commitments we have received through the Standards, but we neither expect nor insist that everyone agree with our assessment of them. We tell you about them now because we want you to have an accurate picture of where we stand and what we love. For a helpful summary of what is meant by "Reformed Theology," please click here.
