Knowing Christ is an amazing lifelong journey! Start your journey with Charles Town Presbyterian Church:
What is a Presbyterian? The name Presbyterian comes from the Greek term in the new testament for elder, presbuteros, a term used 72 times in the New Testament. Presbyterian church government emphasizes that the leadership of the church is shared between those called to be ministers and church members called to be elders within the congregation.
- What We Believe: We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- What is unique about the Presbyterian Church? Presbyterians are distinctive in two major ways. They adhere to a pattern of religious thought known as Reformed theology and a form of government that stresses the active, representational leadership of both ministers and church members.
- Our mission statement is “Knowing Christ, Growing in God’s love, and Serving as the Holy Spirit Leads“. This statement is supported by our core values: Scripture, the Lordship of Christ, Godly relationship, Christian education, outreach, and reformed heritage.
