More About Us

Our beliefs are founded on the Word of God alone. This means that we believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is inerrant, infallible, and the only rule for faith and life. We also heartily endorse and subscribe to the teachings from the time of the Reformation, as summarized in the Three Forms of Unity, which is comprised of the Belgic Confession of Faith, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dordt. We believe that these Confessions are an excellent and accurate summary of the Word of God.  

Our purpose in corporate worship is to glorify God. We believe that this is best accomplished when we worship God only as He has commanded us to do in His Word. Therefore, our worship service is according to the Reformed Regulative Principle as found in the Directory of Worship for the RCUS.

Our church government is Presbyterian. We believe that the local church should be led by ministers, elders and deacons. We also believe that a church should be united with other like-minded congregations.  Therefore, we are joined with other Reformed congregations in the Northern Plains to form the regional body called “the Northern Plains Classis” and other regional Classes which form the denomination called “the Reformed Church in the United States”.
