About Jesus

Jesus Christ is the only Savior and Lord and redemption is solely through Christ. “Jesus Christ is the only Savior and Lord, and all people everywhere are called to place their faith, hope, and love in him.  …  No one is saved apart from God’s gracious redemption in Jesus 
Christ.”  (Hope in the Lord Jesus Christ, adopted by PC(USA) GA 2002)


About the authority of scripture

The Bible is the one sufficient revelation of God in Jesus Christ. (The Bible is) “the one sufficient revelation of God in Jesus Christ, the Word of God incarnate, to whom the Holy Spirit bears unique and authoritative witness through the Holy Scriptures, which are received and obeyed as the word of God written.  The Scriptures are not a witness among others, but the witness without parallel.”  (The Confession of 1967, 9.27)


About the Trinity

God is eternally Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The work of God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is the foundation of all confessional statements about God, humanity, and the world. (The Confession of 1967, 9.07) The language of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, rooted in scripture and creed, remains an indispensable anchor for our efforts to speak faithfully of God.

(The Trinity: God’s Love Overflowing, General Assembly 2006) Question: “When we pray to God as our Father, do we mean that God is male?” 
Answer: “No. Only creatures who have bodies can be male or female. But God is a spirit, and has no body.” 
(Belonging to God: A First Catechism, General Assembly 1998)
