About the Presbyterian


Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.


Presbyterian refers to the governmental structure of the church, led by Presbyters (from New Testament Greek meaning Elders).  Elders are elected to a oversight board called the Session, and provide the spiritual leadership of the church, providing care for the members and community.  Work of the Session is carried out by various committees comprised of the elected Elders.
