Like all churches belonging to the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), New Life's doctrinal standards can be found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, along with the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms (click on the titles in bold to view). The Westminster Confession, as well as its catechisms, contains the doctrines of the Reformed faith and classical Protestantism. We believe that these documents are an accurate summary of what is taught in the Scriptures.
This is not to say, however, that we believe the Westminster Standards are perfect or somehow above the teachings of the Bible. The Bible remains our final authority in what we believe and in how we live.
All church officers (elders and deacons) are required to subscribe to the teaching found in our doctrinal standards. However members are certainly not obligated by our church to believe all that is found in the Westminster Confession. New Life Presbyterian Church joyfully practices infant baptism.
