Our Beliefs

Header Image

"I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen." -The Apostles' Creed

We believe that God exists, that he desires to be in relationship with us, and that he sent his Son Jesus Christ to die as a perfect atoning sacrifice, once and for all, to pay for the misdeeds that separate us from communion and relationship with God. In Christ we can find a peace, a purpose, and a righteousness that comes not from ourselves, but from Him.

At Harrison Presbyterian Church, the Scriptures are accepted as the revealed and trustworthy Word of God, for "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness" (2 Tim 3:16).  A summary of our beliefs can be found in the well-known Apostles' Creed and Nicene Creed. We follow in the footsteps of the traditional Reformed theological understanding of God and his Word as expressed in other Reformed/Presbyterian creeds.
