As a member of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) we believe in the Great Ends of the Church:
- The proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind;
- The shelter, nurture, and spiritual fellowship of the children of God;
- The maintenance of divine worship;
- The preservation of truth;
- The promotion of social righteousness; and
- The exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world
Some of the Essential Tenets of the Reformed faith, which Presbyterians are a part of, are:
- Sovereignty- "God is majestic, holy God who creates, sustains, rules, and redeems the world."
- Election- "God chooses to save a people who will serve God and seek to carry out God's purposes in the world through lives of faithful obedience to Jesus Christ."
- Covenant- "God enters into a relationship with people: Israel in the Old Testament; the church in the New Testament. They are the people of God who proclaim and seek to order their lives by God's Word."
- Stewardship- "The people of God manage God's gifts responsibly and seek to make proper use of the good gifts of God's creation."
- Sin- "Humans are not prone to idolatry, which is worshipping anything other than God, and tyranny by which the very fabric of human life and relationships are broken."
- Obedience- "The people of God work for justice and social transformation as expressions of their obedience to God's Word and will in Jesus Christ."
