As a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), the Bible Church subscribes to the stream of Christian theology that takes its name from the Reformers (“Reformed theology”), as expressed in the Westminster Confession of Faith together with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms (linked here), and adopted by the PCA. We believe that God is sovereign; that humans are sinful and in need of salvation, and wholly incapable of earning favor from God; and God redeems his people through the work of Jesus Christ on the cross.
Practically, we look to the “ordinary means of grace” as the avenues by which God communicates His grace to His people. We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, without error in all that it claims, and profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness, so that God’s people may be complete, equipped for every good work (II Timothy 3:16-17).
We believe that Jesus, for the growth of His church and of His people, instituted two Sacraments: baptism and the Lord’s Supper (or “Communion”). That baptism rightly declares the covenant promises of God for the recipient, and is thus rightly received by those who profess faith in Him, together with their children. We believe that in the Lord’s Supper, though the elements do not change, Christ is himself really and spiritually present in them for those who receive by faith.
And we believe that God works through the prayer of His people to accomplish His purpose in the world, including the sanctification of those very people. Because we believe these to be the fundamental building blocks by which the Lord to works, individually and corporately, we structure our worship around them. We ensure that the largest portions of the service are given to the regular exposition of the Word; a time of extended prayer during the worship service; and the regular administration of the Sacraments.

Presbyterian Church in America
“Faithful to the Scriptures,
True to the Reformed Faith,
Obedient to the Great Commission”
The Presbyterian Church in America is an evangelical denomination in that we proclaim the gospel of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ; the word “evangelical” comes from the Greek word meaning simply “good news.” We desire all people to trust in the saving work of Jesus and enjoy eternal life in Him.
The PCA is a “Reformed” denomination in that we believe in the Biblical truth proclaimed during the Protestant Reformation. The Word of God, rather than tradition, is the highest guide for the Church. God alone saves through His immeasurable mercy and according to His sovereign plan, based solely on the merit earned by Christ, and not at all based on the merit of the one saved.
The PCA is a Presbyterian denomination in that we have a representative form of church government. A local church is governed by a “Session” comprised of elders (or “presbyters”) elected by the members of the congregation. Pastors and representatives of the local congregations in a region form a “Presbytery.” Representatives of presbyteries and local churches meet annually as the “General Assembly.”
