Christ Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA) and as such we are committed to the Bible, Godâ€™s Word, as the supreme rule of faith and life. Because of this, we take public worship very seriously. The Word of God clearly shows that worship is to be ordered according to Godâ€™s instructions, and not according to our imaginations, traditions, or in any way God has not commanded. Therefore, the goal of our worship is to be entirely regulated and ruled by the teaching of Scripture. This means our worship is neither â€ścontemporaryâ€ť nor â€śtraditionalâ€ť but simple and biblical.
We view the faithful preaching (and hearing) of His Word, right administration (and partaking) of the sacraments (baptism and the Lord's supper), and prayer as essential to growth and sanctification in the Christian life. While other churches question the Bibleâ€™s authority, look to another source of truth for guidance, or downplay the ministry of the Word to become centers of entertainment, we remain deliberately committed to expository preaching and teaching of the Word of God. And while some churches are abandoning or â€śupdatingâ€ť the gospel, we are purposely proclaiming â€śthe faith once-deliveredâ€ť that we are great sinners in need of saving and â€śGod saves sinners.â€ť
We are committed to biblical Christianity, as set forth in the historic Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger Catechism, and Shorter Catechism. This is the best known of the seventeenth-century Protestant statements of faith and has been heralded as the finest Christian confession of faith ever composed by uninspired men.
We aim to be what God calls His people to be: a family â€“ naturally and practically caring for one another and discipling one another in the good times and the bad. Our aim, then, is to be a loving community of believers in Christ, truly committed to one another, who live out an unforced and unprogramed discipleship and witness.
Finally, like our forbears, we know that the problems of today admit of no human solution. We believe that the only hope for the world is in the Spiritual regeneration of souls worked by God through Jesus Christ, and so we fervently pray for God-sent revival in our lives, our church, our city and our land. We invite all to come and worship with us.
