Who We Are
We're a family.
Since the late 50's, we've been meeting together in this place. Some folks live close by and others travel quite a distance. We have varied backgrounds: some of us came to faith in Jesus later in life and some of us grew up in it. Some of us are Dutch immigrants who came by way of Canada in the 60's, some of us came to study at Stanford and stayed, and some of us are recent immigrants from Indonesia. We are Silicon Valley tech, med, film, and pharma workers. We are folks just trying to get by in an overpriced, overpopulated, overly beautiful area. You're going to fit right in.
What We Believe
We believe in one God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We are followers of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the center of human history.
We hold our core beliefs in common with the Christian church around the world and throughout the ages. Three statements of belief adopted by the worldwide church centuries ago summarize the most important tenets of our faith: the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.
We are furthermore a Reformed church in the Protestant tradition. Our history connects us to the ancient church, but our theological identity comes from the Protestant Reformation of 16th century Europe. We adhere to three statements of Reformed faith: the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dort, and the Heidelberg Catechism.
