Our church is rooted and growing in historic biblical Christianity.

 

We are connected to the faith of  believers who came before us and with believers who stand beside us today. We are a confessional church, which means that we confess a common faith with other Christians.

Our beliefs unite us with Christians everywhere in all times while also allowing us to humbly and charitably differ in Biblical doctrines that we cherish. As you learn about our beliefs you should know that you don’t need to be a Presbyterian to become a Presbyterian; you just need to believe that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

 

Reformed

We are committed to the beliefs of the Protestant Reformation advanced by men like Martin Luther and John Calvin during the mid-sixteenth century. They are summarized in the Westminster Standards (the Confession of Faith, the Larger and Shorter Catechisms), the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dordt, and the Heidelberg Catechism.

Evangelical

Along with evangelicals in other denominations, we affirm the authority and inerrancy of the entire Bible in its original languages. We believe that salvation is only by God’s grace, and is received solely by faith in Christ. We believe in the historicity of the biblical miracles, of the virgin birth, and in the reality of Christ’s Second Coming.

Presbyterian

We believe that we can not be the church alone. Our membership in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) means we belong to a larger community of churches (which really make up one big church) that holds us accountable, encourages us in our ministry, and partners with us in our mission. We join with them in confessing a common faith and holding to one form of church government. This form of government is defined in the PCA Book of Church Order.
