What We Believe

The 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith

Redeemer Baptist Church subscribes to the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith, a modification of the Westminster and the Savoy Confessions of Faith. Our elders and deacons subscribe to "substantial confessionalism", holding to the doctrines expressed in each chapter, yet with liberty and charity over minor matters of wording, application, and nuance not essential to those doctrines as a whole. We hold (with the Confession itself) that Scripture is above the Confession and that it is a man-made document, capable of error, but which is a good expression of what we believe the Bible teaches.
