RCLA is a church that adheres to several written confessions of faith that we believe to be a good and accurate summary of the Bible's teaching. Our confessional standards consist of the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms, The Heidelberg Catechism, The Canons of Dort and the Belgic confession. We believe these standards contain carefully worded summaries of the contents of Scripture. However, acceptance of every confessional distinctive is not required for membership at RCLA. One may be a participating member of RCLA by affirming the evangelical distinctive that salvation is accomplished by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. Nevertheless, the officers of RCLA must adhere to the system of doctrine taught by the Reformed Creeds and Confessions.
