Beliefs

As a member of the Presbyterian Church in America, our theology is rooted in Scripture and faithfully expressed in

The Westminster Standards: The Confession and Larger and Shorter Catechisms.

 

We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.

We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.

We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people, not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.

 

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.

We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.

We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

This is a summary of our beliefs. The PCA also holds to the historic creeds of the Church and the Westminster Standards: the Confession of Faith, the Larger Catechism, and the Shorter Catechism as accurate statements of biblical faith.
