Important church distinctions!
While our doctrine is Reformed Covenantal (According to the WCF) we are not Presbyterian nor are we affiliated with any formal denomination.
With respect to church government and the administration of the Sacraments we deviate from the Confession in the following ways:
Regarding Governmental Structure
"For we know that every Church has liberty to frame for itself a form of government that is suitable and profitable for it, because the Lord has not prescribed anything definite."
John Calvin (Commentary on 1 Corinthians 11:1-16)
Regarding the Validity of the Administration of Sacraments by Independent Churches
It is important for every Christian to understand that no minister has power to give grace to men, whether through a sacrament or any other means. It is equally true that no minister has the power to make a sacrament ineffective. It is sometimes feared that if a minister is in sin, his administration of baptism and the Lord's Supper is rendered ineffectual. This too is rejected by the Catechism as a man-centered, rather than God-centered view of sacraments."
Crown and Covenant (Commentary on the Westminster Shorter Catechism)
