Our Congregational Core Values are that we:
Nurture our Faith through life-long learning;
Reflect our Faith through worship and witness
Carry Out our Faith believing that everyone is called to honor God and serve others.
These are the four stakes that secure our identity as the Colts Neck Reformed Church. We are foundationally Trinitarian, meaning that we understand God as revealed through scripture as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The "Reformed" in our name means that we are Christians who are reformed, or remolded, reshaped by the Word of God, the Bible.
The Colts Neck Reformed Church is a community of people committed to welcoming all into the life of our church family. We commit to affirm the beauty, value, and gifts of all individuals. These commitments are not subject to a person’s color, race, ethnicity, place of origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, relationship status (single, married, separated, divorced), socioeconomic situation, or a person’s mental, physical, or emotional health or ability. Everyone is welcome to participate fully in the life of our faith-filled community. Anyone seeking to know more about Jesus is welcome at the Colts Neck Reformed Church.
Life is a challenge. As members of the Colts Neck Reformed Church, we do our best to be a caring, accepting, and helpful group of people. We think it's important to provide meaningful worship, supportive relationships, and a solid program of Christian education. We think preaching must be biblical, relevant and practical. We strive to build strong youth ministries and a community of people who support each other when the going gets tough. We strive to keep a balance between local autonomy and denominational services, between clergy and lay people, between individualism and structure.
As the Colts Neck Reformed Church, we proclaim the Bible as God's Word for our time, the only reliable guide for our convictions and our lifestyle. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the Savior of those who believe in him. We believe the historic Christian faith as stated in the Apostles' Creed. We regard the Heidelberg Catechism, a sixteenth-century statement of faith, as an excellent tool for understanding the Christian faith and acknowledge the particularly important role it has played in our Reformed Church history.
