Christ Presbyterian Church is a body of people who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as He is set before us in Holy Scripture. We are united under Him as the only head and king of His Church. We are a church that desires to see the gospel proclaimed to all nations, beginning with ourselves and the communities in which we live. We are Reformed in doctrine and committed to teaching the whole counsel of God as we find it revealed in God's word, the Bible, which we affirm to be the only infallible rule for the faith and practice of the Church of Jesus Christ. We are a mission work of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, and are therefore Presbyterian in our form of government. We have adopted the Westminster Standards (the Confession of Faith, together with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms) as those which we believe to be the most faithful to the teaching of Holy Scripture. We seek in our worship services to be disciplined (trained) as followers of Christ under the preaching of the Scriptures, and to observe the sacraments (baptism and the Lord's Supper) which He has entrusted to His Church. This is what we desire to be as a church under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, because this is what we believe brings glory to the true and living God. In order to be this kind of church, this is what we are doing...
1. We meet together each Sunday to worship God. This worship involves our prayers, the singing of hymns and psalms, confessions of our sin and faith, the reading and preaching of God's Word from a Reformed perspective, and participation in the sacraments which Christ has entrusted to His Church.
2. We seek to teach ourselves the Scriptures that we as believers may in turn disciple our families to practice love to Christ and our neighbors, by a faithful witness to the gospel, and learning what it means to extend grace in all of our relationships.
3. We pray that God will be pleased to own our weak efforts, thus enabling us to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ, and that through our witness others come to know Him.
4. We pray that as a result of God's grace to us in the Lord Jesus Christ we will experience the love, peace, and joy of Christ as a people who have been liberated from their own sins to serve Him.
5. We pray that God will use the members of Christ Presbyterian Church to be active and intentional witnesses of the gospel to those who are strangers to God's grace and without hope in the world. We do so believing that this brings glory to God. This means that we pledge ourselves to be a warm and caring people in order to extend the love of Christ to others.
6. Since God in His grace and mercy has given us many and different gifts, we believe that all of us are called by Christ to exercise these various gifts in love, employing all of our resources and talents, both locally and worldwide, to see the kingdom of Christ extend throughout all the world.
