What is a Presbyterian?
The Presbyterian Church (USA) is a mainline Protestant Christian denomination in the United States. It is the largest Presbyterian denomination in the U.S. and known for its relatively progressive stance on doctrine. In its confessions, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) expresses the faith of the Reformed tradition. Central to this tradition is the affirmation of the majesty, holiness and providence of God who creates, sustains, rules and redeems the world in the freedom of sovereign righteousness and love.
Have questions about the Presbyterian faith? Many of our members have come from other faith backgrounds, and we welcome your questions as you seek to learn more on your own particular journey of faith. You can start here to learn what it means to be a Presbyterian. You can also join the Adult Education classes Sundays at 11:15 to learn more, and you can arrange to meet with the pastor, or ask staff and members questions over coffee.
The PCUSA is in full communion covenant relationship with:
Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), Reformed Church in America (RCA), United Church of Christ (UCC), Covenant Relationship Korean Presbyterian Church Abroad, Moravian-Reformed Covenant Partnership.
Sexuality and Same-Gender Relationships
In 2014, the 221st General Assembly voted to amend the section of the Directory for Worship on marriage services to include same-gender couples. The amendment was approved by a majority of presbyteries and became effective in June, 2015.
“Marriage is a gift God has given to all humankind for the well-being of the entire human family. Marriage involves a unique commitment between two people, traditionally a man and a woman, to love and support each other for the rest of their lives. The sacrificial love that unites the couple sustains them as faithful and responsible members of the church and the wider community."
