We Believe…

Ridgewood is part of the Christian Reformed Church.

Christian- We believe that Jesus Christ is Savior and Lord.  We strive to follow Jesus in all that we do.

Reformed- Our historical roots are in the Protestant Reformation of the 1500s.  We emphasize the Bible as the Word of God, the only dependable guide for life and faith.  Since the Bible is God’s Word, we expect Him to speak to us in it, and we approach His Word with reverence, anticipation and humility.  We believe in the sovereignty of God over every part of life.  And we believe that salvation comes by grace alone—a gift from God.  Because of that grace, the Christian life is one of gratitude that shows itself in service and love.

Church- As the people of God, we need each other—for love, support, encouragement and correction.  Our faith is nurtured in our togetherness.  To be the Body of Christ and to serve God’s world effectively, we need each other!
