We affirm the statements of the Apostle’s Creed (“I believe in God, the Father Almighty, …”), we emphasize the centrality of the gospel and we are connected with other churches through the Evangelische Allianz.

Coming from a reformed tradition we understand the Bible as God’s Word to mankind and as the only authoritative basis for our faith (Sola Scriptura). The Bible testifies to the deep guilt of all men before God and to God’s astonishing offer of salvation through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. Salvation is possible only through God’s grace (Sola Gratia), it can only be found in Jesus Christ (Solus Christus), and it can only be obtained by personal faith in Him (Sola Fide).

Furthermore we can be distinguished …

– by the fact that we solely baptize people according to their confession of faith in God. We do not baptize infants.
– by the fact that we live our daily church life independently of governmental or ecclesiastical authorities.
– by the fact that we are being financed exclusively through voluntary donations. There are no compulsory charges.
– by the fact that every member of the church contributes to our church life. We do not have a separation between clergy and lay people.
