Tri-Lakes Reformed Church is a daughtered congregation of the Springs Reformed Church of Colorado Springs, which is a member congregation of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA). Our churches are committed to the full inspiration and authority of the Bible in all matters of faith and life. We believe that the truth of Scripture is knowable and necessary for salvation – “…so faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the Word of Christ.” (Rom. 10:17) Since Christ commissioned the church to make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:19), we believe it is part of our duty to set forth the truth of Scripture clearly and publicly by way of preaching and teaching, and creeds and confessions, so that they may be taught to “…observe all that I have commanded.” (Matt. 18:20)
In light of the above, we believe that the most comprehensive and accurate summary of what the Bible teaches is to be found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, together with the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms. The Westminster Confession was completed in England in 1647 as a comprehensive statement of Christian belief and practice, with the desired intention of helping Christ’s church become unified in doctrine, government, and worship (John 17:11). In addition to the Westminster Standards, we also maintain the Testimony of the RPCNA, which is our continuing and contemporary application of the Word of God to our current culture and context (all of these documents are in the Constitution of the RPCNA).
Each of these documents is considered to be subordinate to, and correctable by, the Word of God. We hope that you will take some time to read our confession of faith and contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
