What We Believe

As a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), a conservative, evangelical, Reformed denomination, all of our officers subscribe to the 1642 Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms.  Please see http://www.pcanet.org/beliefs/.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that the lost and sinful person must be saved, and that mankind's only hope of redemption is through the perfect life and sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe in and practice both believer's baptism and covenant baptism wherein the children of believers are baptized as a sign of their parents' (or parent's) faith that God will be God to them and to their children.  We also celebrate the sacrament of the Lord's Supper at least monthly.    

We believe in the present ministry and baptism of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; those that are saved into the resurrection of life and those that are unsaved into the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
