Presbyterian Beliefs

BASIC BELIEFS

We believe in God the Father and creator of the universe.
We believe in Jesus Christ who suffered and died to free us from our sins.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who is active in the lives of believers.
We believe in the Bible as the word of God.
We believe in the power of prayer to change the world and ourselves.

DISTINCTIVE PRESBYTERIAN BELIEFS

Presbyterians are distinctive in two major ways:  they adhere to a pattern of religious thought known as Reformed theology and a form of government that stresses the active, representational leadership of both ministers and church members.

PRESBYTERIAN THEOLOGY

Some of the principles articulated by John Calvin remain at the core of Presbyterian beliefs. Among these are the sovereignty of God, the authority of the scripture, justification by grace through faith, and the priesthood of all believers.  What they mean is that God is the supreme authority throughout the universe.  Our knowledge of God and God's purpose for humanity comes from the Bible, particularly what is revealed in the New Testament through the life of Jesus Christ.  Our salvation (justification) through Jesus is God's generous gift to us and not the result of our own accomplishments.  It is everyone's job - ministers and lay people alike - to share this Good News with the whole world.  That is also why the Presbyterian church is governed at all levels by a combination of clergy and laity, men and women alike.
