We are a Grassroots Mission.
Come and see for yourself what it means to be a grassroots mission! We are a small group of families seeking to be faithful, privileged to have God work through our weaknesses to be a brand new congregation with Vangaurd Presbytery. This is both exciting and daunting. We are striving to proclaim Christ here in Clarksville and Hopkinsville, because He is the only means to change lives with the Good News about Christ and His resurrection. We are utterly dependent on Him in all we do to be able to grow just like the first New Testament churches. The Gospel that changed the ancient world can do the same today and answers every need we have.
We are Presbyterian.
A Presbyterian church is led by elders and is connected with other Presbyterian churches with accountability. That means there is oversight by elders to protect the name of Christ`s church, to carefully pastor those who attend and to seek to follow the leadership examples found in the New Testament. As a Presbyterian, you have recourse when you have concerns and have the right to appeal to the elders, session, and presbytery.
We are Reformed.
We are a church plant that is part of a 500-year-old reformed heritage. Reformed theology is simply biblical Christianity. It is the belief that God is Triune – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe we are saved by faith alone, in Christ alone, through grace alone. We believe “all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Tim 3:16-17) We do not add or subtract from the word of God.
We are a Covenant People.
God is a God of promises. From Genesis to Revelation, God reveals His promise of a Redeemer, Jesus Christ, Who will save His people from their sins through a covenant of grace. God instituted the family. He loves His children and has chosen to covenant with families to fulfill His promises to those whose faith is in Him. Peter said, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins….The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off – for all whom the Lord our God will call.” Acts 2:38-39
