What We Believe

The Bible

The Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

The Trinity

We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, all equal in power and glory.

Sin & Salvation

We believe that all people are sinners and rebels against God. We deserve his wrath.

The Father, out of love for sinners like us, sent his only Son into the world to live righteously, to die in the place of sinners, and to rise victorious over sin and death on the third day, so that all who believe in him would not perish but have everlasting life. God invites all people in all places to turn to him and be saved.

This good news comes to sinners who are dead in sin. Therefore, the Holy Spirit must give new life and faith so that the one who was dead can now live and believe. God’s choice to make some alive is not based on any human merit or foreseen faith. By grace we are saved.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people, teaching them, assuring them of his love, and giving them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow him.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive his people to himself.

The Church

We believe that as the Holy Spirit unites sinners to Jesus, so He also unites them to others in a worshipping body - the Church.

Life in God's Kingdom

We believe that the ultimate goal for humans is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. We affirm that Jesus is Lord over all creation and serving Him can make a difference in every area of life.

We're a confessional church.

What we believe is expressed in a confession – an organized summary of key biblical truths about who God is, who we are, and how he relates to us. We hold to the Westminster Confession of Faith, along with the Larger & Shorter Catechisms. Being confessional says the Church and the Christian faith are bigger than just us. It connects us to other churches across time and place, who all believe the same thing.

Lexington Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
