Our Affiliation

We are a mission congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA)

The 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 often described as an Evangelical, Reformed, and Presbyterian denomination.

The distinctiveness of the PCA lies in our stress on both reformation and revival. Without an emphasis on revival, “reformation” may become either a mimicking of political ideologies or sterile doctrinal-ism. Without an emphasis on reformation, “revival” may become a shallow pietism or mysticism. Only reformation and revival together can accomplish the Great Commission of our Lord.


By Evangelical, we mean that we emphasize the Gospel (good news of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ), as well as being a church that affirms historic Christian doctrine and holds 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 during the Protestant Reformation. These doctrinal beliefs are expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. All elders and deacons of the Presbyterian Church in America must personally subscribe to and uphold the teachings of our confession.


By Presbyterian, we are describing our representative form of church government. The Bible teaches that Christ is the head of the church (Eph 1:22-23), and he vests His power in the local church (Matt 16:18-19) where it is ministered & declared by the elders (Acts 15:2; Tit 1:5-9), who are elected by members of the congregation.  We also believe that Christ connects the local church to other churches through councils of elders, such as “Presbyteries” and “General Assemblies,” which serve many beneficial purposes to include answering questions of Biblical doctrine (Acts 15:1-35), ordaining pastors (1 Tim 4:14), and coordination of missionary work (Acts 21:17-26).
