Creeds and Confessions

The Bible is the only inerrant, infallible, and authoritative rule for what we believe and practice. Our understanding of Scripture's essential teaching is summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms. Officers in the Presbyterian Church in America take a vow to “sincerely receive and adopt” these confessional documents “as containing the system of doctrine taught in the Holy Scriptures.”

We also concur with several helpful and historic summaries of the Christian faith, such as the Apostles', Nicene, and Chalcedonian Creeds.

“The supreme judge by which all controversies of religion are to be determined, and all decrees of councils, opinions of ancient writers, doctrines of men, and private spirits, are to be examined, and in whose sentence we are to rest, can be no other but the Holy Spirit speaking in the Scripture.”
