Welcome to Providence Presbyterian Church!
Welcome to the website of Providence Presbyterian Church. We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). We would love to worship God with you. We meet at 9:00 am for Sunday school and 10:30 am for worship. If you have any questions, please give us a call, or we can talk about them during our coffee and fellowship time from 10:00 am and 10:30 am.
Providence Presbyterian Church is accurately described as a Reformed and Presbyterian Church. This means that first and foremost, Providence is a Church. A Church is a gathering of men, women, and children who profess faith in Jesus Christ. The Bible calls the members of a Church “disciples.” A disciple is someone who follows the person of Jesus Christ. Providence seeks to be a Church made up of people following Jesus.
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.
