Veritas holds to reformed theology. By this, we mean that we generally agree with the theology that was recovered in the 16th and 17th centuries during the Protestant Reformation – we believe the reformers had it right, and recovered the theology of men like Augustine, the Apostle Paul, and Jesus.
Some of you are new to reformed theology and so I promised to post some resources to get you started:
- You can read through the Veritas Church Elder Doctrinal Statement. We don't require members to hold to everything in this document - but we do require this of our pastors.
- The London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689 is one of the best historical articulations of reformed theology.
- If you're struggling to understand the 1689 confession, but want to, buy Samuel Waldron's commentary.
- If you're looking for a good, historical, reformed catechism (summary of theological beliefs in question and answer format) check out the Heidelberg Catechism.
- If you're looking for a book that will be a great primer on reformed theology, purchase R.C. Sproul's "What is Reformed Theology."
- Desiring God has a great booklet available online for free. It's called "What We Believe About the Five Points of Calvinism."
- And finally, the best website to find articles and books that will answer your questions biblically is, in my opinion, Monergism.
