What We Believe:

Presbyterians believe that the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God and that they are the source of those truths by which people live.  The belief that Jesus Christ is the Son of God is central in Presbyterian doctrine.  God, through Jesus, revealed God’s very self to human beings.  The Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) ennobles every act of worship, every baptism, and assures the full blessing of God at the close of each service.

We also believe that true salvation is determined by God alone, not by our good deeds.  Our good works are the fruit of our salvation which is evidence that we are growing in grace and knowledge of God.  Salvation is a gift of God.  Forgiveness, grace, and salvation are obtained through a personal relationship with God.

Basics of Presbyterian Theology:

        • God governs all that God has made.
        • Worship is gratitude expressed in praise of God.
        • Jesus Christ stands at the center of what we believe and do.
        • Scripture is the final authority for what we believe and do.
        • We are to serve God with heart, soul, and mind in every aspect of our lives.
        • We are to lead lives of discipline and simplicity
