About Us

About Us

Our purpose at Pilgrim Presbyterian Church is to glorify God through worship and service in the power of the risen Lord Jesus Christ, who is the only Redeemer of sinners.  We believe that the Triune God reveals himself and reveals all we need for life and godliness in the Bible, which is his infallible word.  An excellent summary of what Scripture teaches may be found in our doctrinal standards: the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Larger Catechism and the Shorter Catechism, all of which summarize Reformed theology.

We are a worshipping church.  Coming together to worship our Lord on the Lord’s Day is the center of our life as God’s people. 

We are a learning church.  It is important to be well taught in biblical truth and its application to every area of life.  Just like believers, the church is always reforming according to God’s Word.

We are an evangelistic church.  We take the Great Commission of our Lord very seriously.  We support and pray for the spread of the gospel and the building up of the church both at home and throughout the world. 

We are also a family-oriented church.  We seek the Christian nurture of each member of every family as those who have been set apart to be God’s people.  Together we compose the family of God, and so we cultivate friendship and community among believers in the local congregation.

Pilgrim Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.  The Orthodox Presbyterian Church began in 1936 as a continuing witness to biblical Christianity and Presbyterian practice for modern times.
