What We Believe

About UsWe stand in unity with all Christians who affirm the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.  Like all Christians we stand in a particular historic tradition.  We have our roots in the Reformed branch of the 16th century Protestant Reformation that finds expression around the world in many languages and styles of worship.

We take Reformed tradition seriously with respect to our understanding of Scripture as the inspired Word of God that tells the story of the creation of the world, its fall into sin, and how God works throughout history to redeem the world through Jesus Christ, by grace alone.  By receiving God’s mercy through Christ, we enter into an everlasting covenant with God, who promises to love us forever, even as we covenant to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ.

Regionally we are connected to fellow Presbyterian churches within a body called Presbyteries.  Nationally we are a part of the Presbyterian Church (USA).   Presbyterianism has its roots in the Scottish Reformed tradition of the 16th century.
