OUR BELIEFS

Triune God

There is one God, eternal and existing in three persons (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) who are to be equally loved, honored, and worshipped.

Sin

All humankind participated in Adam and Eve's fall from his original sinless state and is thus lost in sin.

The Bible

The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and the foundation of our faith and practice.

Jesus the Son of God took upon himself a human nature in the womb of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life and died on a cross, bearing the sins of all those who trust in him for salvation. He rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, where he sits as Lord and rules over his kingdom (the church).

Jesus

Salvation

The Sovereign God has chosen sinners to be redeemed by the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit and through the atoning death and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ.

Baptism

Baptism is a sign of God’s covenant and is properly administered to children of believers in their infancy as well as to those who come to trust in Christ as adults.

Death

At death the soul of a follower of Christ passes immediately into the presence of God and the unbeliever’s soul is eternally separated from God unto condemnation.

Righteousness

When people believe in Christ, God declares them righteous and  pardons their sins, not because of any righteousness of their own, but by reckoning Christ’s merits to them.

Christ's Return

Jesus Christ will return to earth, visibly and bodily, at a time when He is not expected, to complete history and the eternal plan of God.

Creation

God created the heavens and the earth, and all they contain. He upholds and governs them in accordance with his will. God is in complete control, yet this does not diminish human responsibility.

Sanctification (Dedication to God)

Believers are adopted as the children of God and the Holy Spirit lives in them, sanctifies them, and enables them to act more like Christ.

Confessions

When the PCA was formed in 1788, it adopted the Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger and Shorter Catechisms (1647), as its secondary standards (the Bible itself being the only infallible rule of faith and practice).
