Federal Vision Theology

At its meeting in Fellsmere, Florida on January 18-19, 2005, the American Presbytery of the Covenant Reformed Presbyterian Church voted unanimously to adopt this statement:

The Covenant Reformed Presbyterian Church has found itself in the unenviable position of having to deal with a recent movement, variously referred to as Auburn Avenue Theology, Monroe Doctrine, Federal Vision, Hypercovenentalism and Neolegalism. We hereby express our concern regarding numerous doctrinal aberrations within the writings of the major proponents of this movement.

It is our desire as a denomination to be known for our clarity and charity, as well as our evangelistic zeal. There are times when the church must take a definitive stance against theological error, especially when said error strikes at the heart of the Gospel.

We stand with our Protestant forbearers in declaring justification by faith alone based upon the imputation of Christ’s righteousness alone. We cordially invite those who are likewise interested in the truths of the Protestant Reformation to join with us in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ to the world.
