What We Believe

The Bible

We stand under the Word of God, not above it. The Bible is inerrant and complete. That doesn't mean it's easy to understand, so we devote ourselves to studying it together, and applying it to our lives.

The Westminster Standards

We believe that God's Word presents a coherent system of truth. This truth has been accurately and faithfully described in the Westminster Standards. Though the Bible is the only infallible rule of faith and practice, all of our church leaders are required to sincerely receive and adopt these standards.

The Presbyterian Church In America

Immanuel Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the PCA. As such, we require all of our leadership to wear khaki pants and blue blazers. Those who wear bowties are esteemed highly.
