WE ARE AN EVANGELICAL CHURCH.
We believe and hold to the fundamentals that are summed up in the Apostles Creed. We affirm our unity with all those who share these beliefs, regardless of whether they belong to other traditions or denominations.
WE ARE A CONFESSING CHURCH.
Our confession of faith consists of the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. We believe that they are comprehensive, accurate summaries of what the Bible teaches.
WE ARE A REFORMED CHURCH.
We share the heritage of the 16th century Reformation, as embodied in the work of Luther, Calvin, and Knox. We identify with the Calvinistic doctrines. We affirm the Reformed distinctions that include: sovereignty of God in His creation; providence and election of believers apart from any merit of their own; the irresistible grace of God provided for and preceding the faith of the individual; the sufficiency of God’s grace apart from which man is dead in sin and wholly defiled in all his faculties of soul and body; the efficacy of Christ’s death for all those who believe in Him by grace; and the safeguarding of all those from whom Christ died in order to give eternal life.
WE ARE A COVENANTAL CHURCH.
We believe that the one unifying principle that we find throughout the Old and New Testament is the covenant grace of God. By His grace, God entered into a relationship with us by establishing an everlasting covenant with us. This unifying principle is important in that it demonstrates that there is only one way to salvation in all of Scripture, that is, by faith in Jesus Christ. We disagree with any views that imply that there have been different ways of salvation in different eras.
WE ARE A PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH.
We believe that the church must be ruled by elders (or presbyteries), as is consistent with God’s Word. Redeemer belongs to the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) in the Korean Southwest Presbytery.
