What do presbyterians believe?

   First, Presbyterians are Christians

    Presbyterians share many beliefs with other Christian communities.  As       part of the worldwide Christian Church, we believe:

  • in the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • that Jesus Christ is the incarnation of God in the world
  • that the Bible is the inspired word of God
  • that the church is the community of God called together in worship and service
  • that God loves each one of God's children and we are blessed in God's sight

   Second, Presbyterians are Protestants

   As Reformed Christians, we trace our ​heritage to the Protestant                      Reformation of the 16th century.  In common with most Protestant                  churches, we believe:

  • that Christ ordained two sacraments for the church: Baptism and the Lord's Supper
  • that we are justified (brought into relationship with God) by faith and not by works
  • that we are saved by faith and not by works
  • that the "priesthood"is a priesthood of all believers in which God calls all who know the love of God to share that love with the whole world

   Third, Presbyterians are Reformed

   In common with most Reformed Christians, we believe:

  • in the sovereignty of God
  • that the church is called to be "reformed and always being reformed according to the word of God"
  • that though we are great sinners, Christ is a great savior
