Christ Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). The Westminster Standards (Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger Catechism and Shorter Catechism) function as a secondary authority in our church. Each minister in the PCA must affirm his agreement with the system of doctrine contained in the Standards as being that which Scripture teaches. Our pastors and elders teach, preach, and lead according to the system of doctrine that is contained in these statements. The Standards, then, become a guide to the church’s beliefs and practices.
