Independent

Saint Paul is an independent congregation in the Reformed tradition. As such, Saint Paul is not affiliated with a particular denomination. Saint Paul is an independent congregation due to our desire to remain steadfast in the Reformed tradition without the influence of denominational governance.

Reformed

Saint Paul is a confessional church. As such, we adhere to a written confession of faith that we believe to be a good and accurate summary of the Bible's teaching. Our confessional standards consist of the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms. We believe these standards contain carefully worded summaries of the contents of sacred Scripture.

Our theology is "Reformed" in that, the distinctive doctrines of the magisterial Reformers such as Luther, Calvin and Knox are also embraced in a way that distinguishes the Reformed tradition from other Protestant bodies. Reformed theology places great emphasis on the doctrine of God, which doctrine is central to the whole of its theology. In a word, Reformed theology is God-centered.

Presbyterian

Saint Paul's form of government is Presbyterian in nature; or, in other words, our church is governed by elders. Presbyterian comes from the Greek word meaning, simply, "elder." The Apostle Paul emphasized a plurality of elders in the early church (Titus 1:5; Acts 20:17). An elder is a biblically qualified man who has been nominated, trained, examined, and ordained to oversee the affairs of the church. The Bible gives explicit qualifications for such men (1 Tim. 3:1-7).
