Providence Presbyterian, as a Christian church, holds to the historic faith expressed in the Apostles Creed and Nicene Creed. As a part of the Protestant Reformed tradition we also hold to the doctrines set forth in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms as a secondary standard to the Word of God.
Our Foundational Commitments:
- The absolute authority of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inerrant Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
- A commitment to the historic Reformed faith as expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms of the Presbyterian Church in America, as containing the system of doctrine taught in the Holy Scriptures.
- The centrality of the Gospel in the life of the church. The Gospel of Grace, revealed in the person and work of Jesus Christ is both the content and power by which we are able to fulfill our purpose as a local church. Jesus works through those who trust in Him.
- The importance of the local church. The church is the house and family of God, the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ, a community where people are transformed through the Word, Sacraments, Prayer, and Fellowship.
