               Protestant Church we are part of that historic church that grew                                       God, which is your

                Scripture alone is our only guide for faith and life and that the
               historic confessions (Heidelberg Catechism, Belgic Confession and
                Canons of Dort) faithfully summarize the teaching of the Bible.                                                       Romans 12:1
               We are United as a body of Christian believers that gathers each
               Lord’s Day, where God is glorified through the faithful preaching
               of His Word, baptism and the Lord’s Supper are received and his
                                   church is discipled with care.
