Who We Are
We subscribe to the fundamental doctrines of reformed theology. These are summarized in the 5 essential points of reformed doctrine known as the 5 Solas:
Sola Scriptura – The only source of God’s special revelation in written form is the Bible. It is breathed out by the Holy Spirit and penned by man. It is holy, inerrant and infallible.
Solus Christus – The only way to salvation is through Christ alone.
Sola Fide – Mankind’s justification is achieved only through Faith in Christ alone.
Sola Gratia – Only through God’s gift of Grace can we have Faith in Christ.
Soli Deo Gloria – To the glory of God alone.
Nature of Worship
Christian worship is a work of God’s sanctifying grace by which He draws His people into communion with Himself and calls forth their active, grateful, obedient, loving, joyful, reverent, whole-hearted response to all He is and has done for them. Worship is to be given to God, and to God alone, as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The acceptable way of worshipping the true God is instituted by himself, and so limited by his own revealed will, that he may not be worshipped according to the imaginations and devices of men, or the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representation, or any other way not prescribed in the Holy Scripture. From the Westminster Confession of Faith
The worship service at Scots Kirk is centered on the reading and preaching of the Word, prayer and the joyful singing of old and new hymns, spiritual songs and psalms.
The Church is the Body of Christ
- We are a family of brothers and sisters in Christ.
- We care for each other.
- We have elders and deacons who shepherd and take care of each member.
- We serve God by exercising our spiritual gifts all to His glory.
- Each part of the Body is important.
