Presbyterian 

Church in America

 

The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) was formed in 1973 to be a denomination that is "Faithful to the Scriptures, True to the Reformed Faith, and Obedient to the Great Commission."

The PCA is an evangelical denomination in that we proclaim the gospel of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.  The word "evangelical" comes from the Greek word meaning "Good News."  We desire all people to trust in the saving work of Jesus and enjoy eternal life in him.

  • We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts.  The Bible is the revelation of God's truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

  • We believe in the Holy Trinity.  There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  

  • We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God's displeasure, except by his mercy.

  • We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those he will save. 

  • We believe his choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through his perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in him alone for salvation.

  • We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
