Our Commitments

2. Fighting for Truth

Christ’s kingdom is established on the truth of His word, and we’re committed to defending that truth, especially where it is most under attack today. We and our fellow churches in Evangel Presbytery hold to confessional doctrinal standards which were fought for and passed down to us in the Protestant, Reformed, Evangelical tradition. Furthermore, we are committed to following the example of our fathers in the faith by fighting today’s battles against besetting sins in our own lives, in the church, and in our society. As one example, we are committed to proclaiming the goodness of God’s creation of male and female and the many implications which flow from it, whether it be God’s hatred of sexual perversion or His love of fruitfulness and children.

Ezekiel 22:30“I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one.”

Titus 1:9“Holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, so that he will be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict.”

Jude 1:3“Contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints.”
