What We Believe


Presbyterians are a group of protestants whose church is founded on the concept of democratic rule under the Word of God.

The Presbyterian denomination is a form of Christianity democratically organized to embrace the faith common to all Christians. Authority resides with the duly elected representatives of the congregation in the appointed church governing bodies. 

  • Session – the local church’s governing body.
  • Deacons – elected to conduct the temporal and charitable ministry of the church.
  • Trustees – (in some churches) elected to manage financial, legal and property affairs of the church.
