All the churches and organisations that have placed information on this Web site firmly believe the truth revealed in the Bible that salvation is entirely the work of a gracious and loving God towards undeserving, indeed hell-deserving, sinners. They acknowledge that men and women are incapable of choosing to obey God's commands unless God himself works in their hearts to give new life, spiritual life, as a gift. They believe that the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, containing all that is necessary for men and women to know in order to understand their need for salvation, how that salvation is to be found, and how to live for him both now and into eternity.

They also recognise the need to be obedient to the command of the Lord Jesus to "make disciples of all nations" through preaching and promoting the good news that the Son of God has taken upon himself the punishment deserved by guilty sinners, in order that they might receive forgiveness and the gift of his righteousness. God has ordained that his people will be saved and that it is primarily through the preaching of this gospel that they will be brought to trust in Christ for salvation.

Reformed Evangelical Christians hold to what are commonly called the Doctrines of Grace. These are often written down as a series of five points, and you can find out more about these doctrines by following the relevant link below. But within the Reformed world there are a variety of churches, each with perhaps their own emphases on secondary matters, for example on church government or baptism. The theological positions of these different churches have been set down in various formal confessions and statements of faith, which you will find in the list below. Each link will take you to a copy of that particular document, and as some of these are rather long, the file size is given next to each link to alert you to those which you might like to view or download at a time when the Net is at its quietest!
