What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Presbyterians believe -
Jesus was born of a woman — Mary — in a particular place — the Middle  East — to a particular people — the Jews. He was born as a helpless  infant who hungered, cried, had to be changed and grew as all babies  grow. As a grown man, Jesus knew all of the feelings humans know — joy,  sadness, discouragement, loneliness and longing. Yet, Jesus also trusted  completely in God and was without sin.
Jesus’ actual ministry on earth was short — approximately three  years. Because his teachings challenged powerful religious and  government leaders, he was executed as a dangerous and seditious  criminal. He died, was buried and was resurrected by God. For  Christians, this resurrection is God’s most amazing miracle and proof  that Jesus was indeed divine.
We believe that Jesus is as alive today as he was on the first Easter  morning and that he is present with us today, even though we cannot see  him or physically touch him. We call Jesus “Lord” because he has saved  us from the power of death and the power of sin and because, through his  sacrifice, we are able to know the fullness of God’s love for us.
Christians also believe that Jesus will one day return to the earth  to complete the task of creating a world where justice, peace and love  rule and evil is no more. To those who believe in Christ, such an event  is seen not with fear but with joyful anticipation. Because Jesus showed  that not even death can stop God’s purpose and God’s activity, we know  that we have life and hope forever.


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

Every season has its messages.

Pastor Teddie likes to base her sermons on the Lectionary, which means that we cover most of the Bible over the course of three years. This matches what most Christian churches follow, so a consistent set of verses is heard over time. Pentecost celebrated the coming of the Holy Spirit to the disciples, enabling us to not only talk to God, but also to hear directly from God instead of listening only to prophets.
