Reformed Theology

"There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death."  Romans 8:1


 The Five Solas that came out of the Reformation:
Faith Alone

Grace Alone

  Christ Alone

Scripture Alone

Glory to God Alone

Reformed theology maintains that the Triune God is holy and sovereign over all His creation; that man is born in sin and has sin in every area of his life; that apart from the perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ, man is completely lost to salvation.  We come to the Father, through the Son, by the Spirit. 

The Orthodox Presbyterian Church is a Christian church. We believe what the Bible says and try to put it into practice. Orthodox is an old word that means straight teaching. We believe that there is one eternal God existing in three persons. God the Father gave up his Son Jesus Christ to death on a cross to pay for the sins of his people. Because the entire human race has rebelled against God, the Holy Spirit brings new life—Jesus resurrection life—which we receive by faith, trusting Jesus as our only King and Savior.

 We are also a Presbyterian church. Every church has some understanding of what the Bible teaches, the question is do they make it official by putting it in print. We insist on being transparent about what we believe the Bible teaches, so we publish our confession of faith in the Westminster Confession of Faith and in the Larger and Shorter Catechisms.  While these documents summarize Bible teaching, they never take the place of the Bible itself.  Scripture is always our primary standard and final authority. Our churches are structured so every level (elders, presbytery and general assembly) provides accountability and connects each congregation to the worldwide mission of the church. Together we seek to establish the worship of God and to proclaim the gospel to all people everywhere.

 Our chief end is to glorify and enjoy God forever.  We recognize that we fall short in many ways and are not a perfect church, yet it is our sincere desire to be honest and consistent in our life, worship and witness.
