Our Beliefs -- What is "Reformed Theology?"

The Presbyterian Church traces its roots to the Protestant Reformation of the 16th Century.

Reformed Christians believe that the Bible is the final arbiter of spiritual thinking and practice. God's Living Word (Jesus) continues to speak over the centuries through the written Word (Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments).

The word "Presbyterian" comes from the Greek word (presbuteros) or "elder." From earliest times congregations were led by elders — those who demonstrated maturity through experience and spiritual growth. Presbyterian churches are "elder churches" in that they are governed as representative democracies by elected lay people and called people.
