What We Believe

The Five Solas

The Five Solas are five Latin phrases (or slogans) that summarize the essentials of Christianity. These phrases have been in use since the Reformation, and we find them useful for summarizing our convictions as well.

  • SOLA SCRIPTURA

    “Scripture alone”: The Bible alone is our highest authority.

  • SOLA FIDE

    “faith alone”: We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ.

  • SOLA GRATIA

    “grace alone”: We are saved by the grace of God alone.

  • SOLUS CHRISTUS

    “Christ alone”: Jesus Christ alone is our Lord, Savior, and King.

  • SOLI DEO GLORIA

    “to the glory of God alone”: We live for the glory of God alone.



Creeds and Deeds

We are a church where Creeds and Deeds are both important. The Creeds will affirm the doctrines of the Faith once delivered to the saints and our deeds are for our neighbors and show that faith is living. All preaching and teaching at Cityview Church conforms to these three historic creeds: The Apostles, The Nicene, and The Athanasian.
