"What is a Presbyterian?"
Anyone who can be a Christian can be a Presbyterian!
The word, "presbuteros" in the New Testament
means "elder," and is based on the democratic custom of selecting leaders and advisors from among the members of
the church. Presbyterians are a group of Protestants whose church is founded on this concept of democratic rule under
the Word of God.
Presbyterian denomination is a form of Christianity democratically organized to embrace the faith common to all Christians.
All are welcome to worship the living Triune God. We feature interactive services of worship in a traditional setting;
we gather together in service of the mission of Jesus Christ and reflective study of the Word of God.
What is the Presbyterian
Church? It is a representative democracy governed by elders elected from and by the congregation.
Deacons are also elected to conduct the charitable ministry of the church.
What do Presbyterians believe?
Like other Christians,
Presbyterians believe in:
- God, the Creator of the universe
- Christ, the incarnation of God on earth
- The Holy Spirit, the presence of God in
the world and in the believer
- The church, a universal community of Christ's followers
- Forgiveness of sin made possible by the crucifixion of Jesus
- Life everlasting as shown by the resurrection
Bible, the inspired Word of God
