Relying on the power of the Holy Spirit, we proclaim the love and good news of Jesus Christ through our words and actions. As a reformed church, we rely on the truth and inspiration of Scriptures for God’s guidance into the future-a future that we approach with wonder and anticipation, knowing God is with us. As worshiping communities joyfully celebrating the sacraments, we are supported, strengthened and equipped to share the love of God revealed in Jesus Christ.
What is Important to Us
As Presbyterians, we believe in the triune God. In other words, God is one God, yet revealed in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is the written revelation of who God is. It is important to gather weekly for worship and to also regularly experience the sacraments of communion. Baptism is seen as a visible sign of God’s promise to God’s people.
Who is a Presbyterian?
A Presbyterian could be a colleague at work. She could be the volunteer who teaches English. He could be the smiling face handing out blankets, or the quiet widower down the street. They could be that group sharing faith stories together and offering support. A Presbyterian could be anyone. What unites Presbyterians is their common faith in God, the way in which they worship and their ability to achieve extraordinary goals for the sake of others.
The word Presbyterian means elder. Elders are church members elected for Christian service by their congregations to represent them and to serve God and the church. There are two kinds of elders who participate in the government of the church: ruling elders are laypeople and teaching elders are ordained ministers.
Our churches use various styles of worship, but we are all focused on the authority of scripture and on being Christ-centred. Living Faith is a statement of Christian belief arising from the Grenadian Presbyterian experience.
