WHO WE ARE

OUR SESSION

We are a congregation committed to glorifying God in our worship  both on Sundays and in our daily callings throughout the week. We are a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. Our public worship is God-centered, biblical, joyful, and thoughtful.

Our teaching focuses on the Bible, proclaiming, explaining, and applying God’s word for salvation, faith, and life. We gather for worship as a fellowship on Sunday but we also believe worship embraces all of life and that what we hear in church should transform the way we live throughout the week. We strive to demonstrate the mercy of God in practical ways—watching over, praying for, and serving one another, and ministering to the needy inside and outside the church.

We uphold the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms as a faithful summary of what the Bible teaches.   We believe that humanity has rejected God and plunged itself into rebellion against Him. But God in his love for us has given us his Son, Jesus Christ, and through trusting him we find both forgiveness and freedom.
