City Church of East Nashville is committed to the basic beliefs of historic Christianity as summarized in the Apostles’ Creed and Nicene Creed
. These creeds focus on who God is (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) and what he has done for humanity (saved us from our sin through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ).
We are also a confessional Presbyterian church, which means that we believe the Westminster Confession of Faith
is a faithful summary and explanation of what God’s Word teaches. While the above creeds address the basics of the Christian faith, the Westminster Confession is a longer, fuller explanation of who God is, what he has done, how he has saved us in Jesus, how Christians are called to live now, and what Jesus will do when he returns.
We are also a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America
, which means that we don’t exist on our own as a church but are formally connected and bound to other confessional Presbyterian churches in our region
and in North America.
