What We Believe


St. Paul’s stands with all Christian churches in affirming our faith in the triune God of the Bible, as summarized in the Apostles’ Creed.
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended into hell.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

As a Reformed congregation that traces much of our theological heritage back to the 16th century Protestant Reformation, we believe that salvation is by grace alone (Sola Gratia), through faith alone (Sola Fide), in Christ alone (Solus Christus), according to Scripture alone (Sola Scriptura), for the glory of God alone (Soli Deo Gloria).

As a part of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), we hold to the doctrinal standards found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger (part 1, part 2) and Shorter Catechisms, and the principles of church government found in the Book of Church Order.
