We Believe

Our Confession of Faith

Five Points Community Church is a confessional church in that we embrace the essential truths of Christianity as these were defined by the great councils of the church and continued in the heritage of historical evangelicalism birthed in the Reformation. We believe the faith once delivered to the saints is articulated in the 1833 New Hampshire Confession of Faith. Although we do not view this confession as having equal authority with Scripture, nor do we wish to restrict the freedom of conscience of the believer in matters of faith, this confession is the doctrinal foundation for all of our preaching and teaching.

Given the context in which we live and serve, it is necessary to preserve the doctrinal integrity of our Confession of Faith by further definition. Thus, we affirm the following documents: The London Confession, The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration, and The Cambridge Declaration. We believe these affirmations and denials provide an authoritative interpretation of the essential doctrines of our Confession.
