Our Confessions

At the Lynden URC we teach our members to know what they believe and why they believe it.  Our confessions are summaries of the core doctrines of the Christian faith. While the confessions are not equal to Scripture, we do believe that our confessions faithfully summarize what the Bible teaches.  Aligning our hearts together in what we confess enables us to walk together in the unity of the Holy Spirit.  To learn about our doctrinal convictions at the Lynden URC, we invite you to explore the three Protestant documents to which we fully subscribe: 

Heidelberg Catechism (1563)

Belgic Confession (1561)

Canons of Dort (1618-19)
