Core Values


We exist to manifest the glory of God’s invisible kingdom throughout our community.


We desire to be a graciously reformed covenant community who glorifies God through our rich worship – both as the church gathered and scattered, our intergenerational fellowship, and our commitment toward multiplying Christ’s church.


It is our mission to gather, shepherd, form, and send disciples of Christ who worship God in all of life.

Our Beliefs

  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is our only rule for faith and life.
  • There is one God, existing in three persons - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit - who are the same in substance and equal in power and glory.
  • Man is a sinner who, by reason of his sin, is guilty before God and is therefore justly deserving of His eternal judgement.
  • Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born of the virgin Mary, became a man, and lived a life of sinless perfection in obedience to the will of God His Father. Jesus did everything necessary for the accomplishment of salvation by living a perfectly righteous life, dying on the cross, being raised from the dead, ascending to the right hand of the Father, pouring out his Spirit, and now living to make intercession.
  • Salvation is by God’s grace alone and is received by faith in Jesus, resulting in forgiveness of sins, acceptance by God into his family, a new life of love for God and obedience to Him, and a new relationship with all other believers as brothers and sisters in the Lord.
  • The return of Jesus will be literal, physical, visible and will occur at the end of the age, at which time there shall be a resurrection of all the dead. All people will appear before his judgement throne. All those who have trusted in him for salvation shall enter into the glory of Heaven and everlasting fellowship in the presence of God. All those outside of the faith shall suffer the eternal punishment of Hell for their sins.

What is the PCA?

The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) was formed to be a denomination that is “Faithful to the Scriptures, True to the Reformed Faith, and Obedient to the Great Commission.”

The PCA is an Evangelical and Reformed Presbyterian denomination.

By Evangelical, we mean that we emphasize the gospel (good news of salvation) through faith in Jesus Christ, as well as affirming other orthodox Christian doctrines and holding to the inerrancy of Scripture.

By Reformed, we mean that we are connected to the teachings of the historic church and the doctrinal beliefs recovered by the Reformation.

These doctrinal beliefs are expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. All officers (elders and deacons) of the Presbyterian Church in America must personally subscribe to and uphold the teachings of the Westminster Confession of Faith.

By Presbyterian, we describe our representative form of church government. Local churches are governed by a “Session” of “presbyters” (elders), elected by the members of the congregation. Representatives of local churches within a geographical area compose a “presbytery.” Representatives of presbyteries meet annually at “General Assembly.” Thus, through the combined efforts and resources of all of the churches, we are enabled to advance God’s Kingdom much more effectively. The Committees and Agencies of the PCA help lead this Kingdom work.

What does the PCA believe?

  • The Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
  • There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons in the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • All are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.
  • Salvation is by God alone, as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.
  • Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.
  • God is gracious and faithful to His people, not simply as individuals, but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.
  • The Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
  • Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people unto Himself.
  • All aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
