Solomon’s Porch Christian Community is a reformed church, meaning that we agree and align ourselves doctrinally with the men of the reformation era. We believe that the Westminster Confession of Faith 1648, Belgic Confession 1618, and the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith 1689 are the best examples of Christian Doctrinal Standards from the reformation era and therefore pastors, teaching elders, and ruling elders at Solomon’s Porch use one of those three as the basis for their ministerial vows.
At Solomon’s Porch one may be a member and not subscribe to the tenets of the reformation era Church. We do ask that our members be able to affirm the Nicene Creed as an accurate summation of the essential Christian truths before they are admitted to membership and pastoral care.
We also believe that it is necessary for the church to give a further testimony in regards to biblical marriage, sexual ethics, social justice, and abortion, as well as other moral dilemmas that arise. These “occasional testimonies” have been ratified by the consistory (our elders & deacons meeting in a combined body) of Solomon’s Porch Christian Community and therefore have been adopted as addendums to our Constitution.
