Providence is distinctively Presbyterian. The word “Presbyterian” is a Greek word meaning “elder.” The Bible instructs the Church to be led by elders who are men with high moral and doctrinal integrity. These men are trained and examined before beginning the work of leading the Church. These elders are to lead by example and service: helping the members of the Church trust Jesus more and more.
Finally, Providence Presbyterian is a “Reformed” Church. In the 16th century Christians throughout Europe recovered the Bible’s teaching. John Calvin in Switzerland, and John Knox in Scotland were two of the men God used to articulate how the Church should follow Scripture. Five points of doctrine began to define Reformed thought. These are sometimes called the Solas (which is the Latin word for “alone.”)
1) The Bible alone is the final authority in the believer’s life.
2) Man is saved through faith alone.
3) Man is saved by grace alone.
4) Jesus Christ alone is the Lord and Savior of mankind.
5) Man is to live for the glory of God alone.
