The Orthodox Presbyterian Church

The Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) is a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching Presbyterian denomination that began in the 1930s. Although we use the word Orthodox in our name, we are not to be confused with churches in the Eastern Orthodox tradition. Orthodox simply means “straight teaching”, from the Greek ortho, meaning “straight” and dox, meaning “teaching”.

Born in 1936 out of the struggles between historic biblical Christianity and early 20th century theological liberalism, the Orthodox Presbyterian Church seeks to be faithful to the scriptures, the legacy of the Protestant Reformation, and the historic Presbyterian confessions — the Westminster Confession of Faith, and its Shorter and Larger Catechisms.

We are a theologically conservative, Calvinistic church. We seek to honor God as the sovereign Lord of the universe. We preach Christ as the Son of God, the only Savior, who died for sinners. We seek to live obedient and joyful Christian lives through the power of the Holy Spirit. We insist upon the absolute truth and authority of God’s word, the Bible, and we invite you to join us in our worship, work, and witness to the Glory of God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
