Christians are people who believe in Jesus Christ and trust Him enough to transfer control of their life out of their own hands and into His hands.
We are members of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A)
Who are we? We are Christians.
Presbyterians trace their history to the 16th century and the Protestant Reformation. Some of the principles articulated in the Reformation 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 through Jesus is God’s gracious 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.
We are a family.
In Christ one always has family, for the church of God is the family of God. We are people who love one another and care about one another, people who will literally pray for one another and provide support and encouragement building a healthy environment in which to grow spiritually and build lasting relationships.
