What We Believe

What We Believe

“We depend greatly on the history of the church and the past.  We don’t believe we are beginning new and fresh every day.  We are drawing on that past.  We are standing on the shoulders of those men who have gone before us.” – C. N. Willborn

What we believe the Bible teaches is summarized in creeds, confessions, and catechisms (for a defense of creeds see this book).  We believe the best expressions of what the Bible teaches are found in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms.

If you clicked to enter this page, our guess is that you are looking for a summary statement of what we believe (our theology & practice).  That summary is found in the documents linked above.

The leaders (“Elder”) of Knox must subscribe to these secondary standards.  Therefore, you know where our church stands on theology and practice.

It is not necessary for visitors or even members of Knox, to believe that the Westminster Standards are the best expression of what the Bible teaches.  From what’s said above, you know that in sermons, Sunday Schools and other occasions, the teachings will be in agreement with Confession and Catechisms – summaries of what the Bible teaches.
