What We Believe

God’s word the Bible is perfect in every way and is the supreme authority of the Church in all matters of faith and conduct - we want to believe what God says in the Bible, and we want to live in obedience to Him.

But ever since the earliest days of the church, Christians have laid out their beliefs in brief 'creeds' or 'confessions' in an attempt to summarise essential Christian truths and to guard the church from error. These statements are always secondary to the Bible but they are enormously helpful. For that reason, all leaders in St Andrews Free Church are required to affirm the Westminster Confession of Faith and to seek to live in the light of it.
