Statement of Faith
Brick Reformed Church acknowledges and claims as its own the faith of the historic Christian Church, expressed most clearly and succinctly through the Nicene and Apostles’ Creeds. As our name suggests, we are also rooted in the tradition of the German Protestant Reformers, and we continue to hold their fundamental convictions, which are the following:
1. Scripture Alone – The belief that the Bible, as the divinely inspired Word of God, is the ultimate rule and authority for the Christian life.
2. Faith Alone - The belief that salvation comes through faith, not works or good deeds.
3. Grace Alone – The belief that salvation can only be received as an act of divine grace, and therefore is not earned.
4. Christ Alone – The belief that salvation comes only through Jesus Christ.
In matters of Doctrine that fall outside the realm of the ancient creeds and these convictions, and where sincere followers of Christ may differ, we allow for the liberty of conscience inherent in the Gospel. In sum, we seek to be a community of believers where the following statement holds true: “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.”
