What We Believe

The Gathering Community Church was chartered in 2009 in Orange County, California. It is an outgrowth of the Dutch Reformed Church in America (RCA).  As a result, The Gathering Community Church holds most of the same beliefs and values of the RCA. Theologically, we adhere to the same tenets and creeds. The foundation of our faith is in the loving, sovereign will of God. We believe that we are called to “pray like everything depends on him and work like it all depends on us.” St. Augustine

We adhere to the following creeds:
The Apostles Creed
The Nicene Creed
The Athanasian Creed
The Heidelberg Catechism
The Belgic Confession
The Canons of the Synod of Dort
