We are a part of the Cumberland Presbyterian denomination that grew out of a movement of spiritual awakening and revival in the early years of the 1800s. A central belief of those who were the founders of our church was that Christ died for all persons, and that all people are included within God’s love for the world. Our calling is to accept the saving love that is already ours in Jesus Christ.
We are also a part of the Presbyterian family of churches rooted in the Reformed tradition that traces its roots to that part of the Protestant Reformation inspired by John Calvin. It is a tradition that recognizes that all of life is to be lived in response to God’s saving love. With regard to decision-making and leadership roles, clergy and laity serve as equals in Presbyterian and Reformed Churches.
