About Us

What We Believe

Jesus Christ alone is Lord and Savior

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.”

The Bible is the unique, authoritative Word of God

While there are a great many scholarly sources that can be useful in providing insight into the Bible, none should ever be substituted for Scripture itself.

One Baptism – Once and For All

We believe that once you have been grafted into the body of Christ, there is nothing that can separate you from that connection. Therefore we do not believe in re-baptism, however, there have been instances where someone wants to rededicate their life to Christ. In such cases we do not re-baptize but recognize that commitment in other ways.

God is still at work in the world. The church is reformed and always being reformed.

God did not set us into cosmic motion and walk away. He is still active in the world through the work of the Holy Spirit and is just as concerned about us as ever. This is also a call to the church to continue on in ministry, recognizing the need to grow and when necessary, change.

Two Sacraments

Presbyterians recognize only two sacraments – Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

Sin is real. Grace is necessary.

We acknowledge that all sin and all fall short of the glory of God. Therefore, each of us stands in the need of God’s grace.

Children are to be welcomed and supported in our ministry.

Jesus said, “let the children come and do not hinder them.”

God calls both men and women into the leadership of the church and that all leaders are to strive to live their lives in accordance with the Authority of Scripture.

We affirm the gifts of both Godly women and Godly men in all areas of church leadership. We hold our leaders accountable to Holy living in accordance with the Authority of Scripture.
