In 2003, a group of elders and pastors from the Presbytery of San Diego got together and decided to create a document that outlined the essential tenets and Reformed distinctives that defined who we are theologically. The document was brought to the floor of Presbytery, and after robust dialog, it was approved. This is an important document that articulates what we believe, and why we believe it! The document follows the pattern set forth by the Barman Declaration, which not only outlines what is believed, but goes on to clarify what is rejected because of what we believe! When we install or ordain leaders in the local Church, they are always asked if they will be guided by the essential tenets of the Reformed faith as expressed in Scripture and in our Confessions. They say, "I will!" If you have ever wondered what they were agreeing too, wonder no longer. Click on the link below and read them for yourself! Enjoy!
