- Second London Baptist Confession of 1689
- The Apostles’ Creed

- Definition of Chalcedon

Social Justice, Marxism, Anti-Americanism
We denounce the false, different gospel (Galatians 1:6-10) being promulgated in Christianity known by such names as: New Calvinism, Neo-Calvinism, and “Young, Restless, Reformed.” Its doctrines include social justice, socialism, communism, Marxism, liberation theology, progressivism (so called), critical race theory, racial reconciliation (so called, because it actually causes racial strife), white privilege, white guilt, intersectionality, violence, reparations, idolatry, evolutionism, feminism (including easy divorce, female pastors), sodomy (homosexuality), sexual orientation, freedom to sin (antinomianism, no Ten Commandments), the infringement of religious freedom against Christians, the murder of babies, Arminianism, Catholicism, universalism (everyone will be saved, including Satan), inclusivism (people are saved if they respond to whatever knowledge, even if they do not believe in Christ), celebritism, and materialism.
These are destructive heresies (2 Peter 2) contrary to Scripture and they subvert a peaceful, American society (and worldwide, for that matter) where Christians may freely preach the true Gospel (1 Timothy 2:1-7). These destructive and demonic heresies are usually foisted on society by the Democrat Party, schools, universities (including Christian colleges and seminaries), the media, social media, and the entertainment industry. They have infiltrated churches and denominations, and now we have an entirely apostate and perverted Christianity which shows no resemblance to Biblical beliefs and conduct.
Our church (ChristReformedChurchDFW.org) is Reformed in the original sense of the term in the 1500 to 1600s. We reject the heretical beliefs of most of the Reformed and Calvinistic churches today, especially those in the Southern Baptist Convention, the Presbyterian Church in America, and the teachings and websites (TheGospelCoalition.org; DesiringGod.org; and others) of Timothy Keller, D.A. Carson, Albert Mohler, Russell Moore, J.D. Greear, Danny Akin, Mark Dever, John Piper, Matt Chandler, David Platt, Alistair Begg, and numerous others.
