About Us

Who We Are

(For an understanding of the pictures to the right please read to the end.)

Westminster Presbyterian Church is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and is committed to glorifying God by following Jesus Christ through the application of His Word and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.

We are evangelical and reformed in our doctrine, and Presbyterian in our polity or form of church government.

As evangelicals, we unite with other evangelical churches in our community and around the world to proclaim the unchanging truth of salvation, by grace alone, through faith alone, and in Christ alone.

As reformed believers, we find our roots firmly planted in the reformation of the church and on the truths for which men and women gave their lives to preserve. We believe that the scriptures are most faithfully represented by the doctrines found in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms.

As Presbyterians, we believe that the form of government most faithful to the scriptures is that which is governed by elders (overseers or under-shepherds of Christ) who, on the local level, comprise a session; on a regional level, comprise a presbytery; and on a national level, meet annually at a General Assembly.

As a church we seek to be a loving community, firmly built on the truth of scripture, and seeking to bring the relevance of the Gospel to bear in our lives and in the lives of other broken people in our community and world who also recognize their need for Christ.

The symbols on the right are representative of who we are.

  • The burning bush has long been a symbol of God's revelation and covenant promises to his people, as well as being a symbol of faith reformed and Presbyterian churches through the ages.
  • The five solas of the reformation surrounding a number of the great reformers and reformed preachers of the past represent our reformational heritage.
  • The Cross represents our evangelical beliefs that bind us together with the universal and invisible church; past, present and future that God has redeemed through the blood of Christ.
  • The hands represent our form of polity or church government by the laying on of hands which set elders and deacons apart unto their office in the church.
