A PCA Church

 

We are PCA (Presbyterian Church in America) not PCUSA.  We believe what Presbyterians have traditionally believed and strive to practice that truth.  We greatly desire is to have the old truth come to a living expression today.  Truth never changes; but times do, and people do.  Doctrine is meant to be lived.  So, we want Christ and his truth to shine in our lives and we are compelled to serve the living God.

Our Doctrinal Standards

 

What do Presbyterians believe?

 

The doctrinal beliefs of the PCA are summarized by the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms; the following is a brief synopsis of those beliefs:

 

  • The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

  • There is one God, eternal and self-existing in three persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) who are to be equally loved, honored, and adored.

  • All mankind participated in Adam’s fall from his original sinless state and is thus lost in sin and is totally helpless.

  • The Sovereign God, for no other reason than His own unfathomable love and mercy, has chosen lost sinners from every nation to be redeemed by the quickening power of the Holy Spirit and through the atoning death and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ.

  • Those sinners whom the Spirit quickens are born again, and thus come to believe in Christ as Savior by the Word of God, become sons of God, and will persevere to the end.

  • Justification is by faith, and through it the undeserving sinner is clothed with the righteousness of Christ.

  • The goal of God’s salvation in the life of the Christian is holiness, good works, and service for the glory of God.

  • At death, the Christian’s soul passes immediately into the presence of God, and the unbeliever’s soul is eternally separated from God unto condemnation.

  • Baptism is a sign of God’s covenant and is properly administered to children of believers in their infancy as well as to those who come as adults to trust in Christ.

  • Jesus Christ will return to earth, visibly and bodily, at a time when He is not ex-pected, to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.

  • The Gospel of God’s salvation in Jesus Christ must be proclaimed to all the world as a witness before Jesus Christ returns.
