What we believe
A Christian Church
Most significantly we are a Christian church, so we aspire to listen to what God has to say to us in the Bible. We aim to put God’s word at the heart of everything we do from Sunday through to Saturday.
However, it’s often helpful for people to know a little more about what we think the Bible teaches. So, we would also describe ourselves as:
A Conservative Evangelical Church
This means we affirm a concise summary of the core doctrines of the Christian faith, like that used by the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship (UCCF). You can see and read this doctrinal basis on the UCCF website.
But such a concise summary doesn’t include everything that defines a church and what it believes. So, most specifically, we are:
A Presbyterian and Reformed Church
This means that our official doctrinal basis is the Westminster Confession of Faith.
It’s important to say, you don’t have to know anything about or agree with everything in these standards to be a part of Christ Church Central Leeds! But they do make clear what will be taught in our church, and how our church will be governed by our eldership.
