Who We Are
We are a mission congregation of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America (RPCNA), a denomination consisting of congregations throughout the United States and Canada. The RPCNA also has sister churches in Ireland, Scotland, and Australia and maintains relations with other Presbyterian and Reformed churches worldwide.
The RPCNA has founded many institutions. For the education and training of Christians, the RPCNA has Geneva College and the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary in the United States and Ottawa Theological Hall in Canada. For short- and long-term missions outreach, we have RP Missions. For care of our older members and others, we have the Reformed Presbyterian Home. For online sermons, we have the ReformedVoice. For publications and Psalmody resources, we have Crown and Covenant Publications.
We are “Reformed”
We hold to the basic tenets of the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century. These biblical truths were affirmed by the early church, suppressed for a time, and rediscovered by the reformers.
We are “Presbyterian”
Presbyterian is the biblical form of church government. Congregations are under the oversight of local elders. The elders in a geographical region form a presbytery and all the presbyteries form a synod. Presbyteries and synods meet at regular intervals.
