South Charlotte Presbyterian Church welcomes skeptics, the curious, and believers alike in their search for truth and life. We believe that Biblical Christianity offers the best answers to the biggest and hardest questions we wonder about.
We embrace and preach the good news that God rescued us from his just judgment for our sinful ways through the life, death, and resurrection of his son Jesus Christ. Although we were once enemies of God and dead in our sins, we are made alive again in Christ and reconciled to God through Christ's sacrifice. We believe that God will one day renew his creation on earth and we will enjoy new lives with him forever.
This gift is not given because of our best efforts, even religiously. It is given as a gift of God's immeasurable grace alone. Grace is free to anyone who believes in sufficiency of Christ's death for their sins and results in a new and transforming life.
the doctrines of our faith
Our church is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), whose doctrinal beliefs are founded in Reformed theology.
We believe the good news of Jesus Christ found in the inspired Scriptures which is the basis of authentic faith in Christ.
We believe in the primary doctrines of the historic Christian church found in universal summaries of the faith such as the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed. These universal creeds articulate the very basics of Christianity and what we believe about Christ.
We believe in the primary and secondary doctrines of Reformed Christianity found in the Westminster Confession of Faith with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms which not only explain the Scriptures well but provide a framework for life in Christ and his church that uses all of the Bible.
These beliefs are summarized by the following:
We believe that doctrines of third importance such as matters of the millennium, spiritual gifts or worship styles are disputable matters where faithful followers of Christ have honest disagreements but can still live in harmony in the church.
