Who are Presbyterians?
Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.
The name Presbyterian comes from the Greek word presbyteros, meaning “elder” and used in the New Testament to describe those who were elected to lead. It also describes how we are organized as a community of faith. From the local congregation to the national denomination, leaders are elected and representative of the whole body. We believe we are called into ministry together and that Christ is the head of the church.
