About Us

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), a reformed, evangelical and conservative denomination.

We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts.

We exist to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.

We aim to worship the one true God in a reverent and joyful manner, to preach and teach the whole counsel of God's Word, to cultivate a true and gracious Christian fellowship among the saints, to shepherd and equip every member of the body of Christ that each one might grow in knowledge, grace and service, to go and make disciples both here and around the world.

Our Vision is to reach Murphy and the surrounding communities of western North Carolina and northern Georgia in order to impact the culture for Christ. Relying on the grace of God and the work of His Spirit, we are working to build a true Christian community where each member is growing in grace, sharing Christ with others, and serving Him faithfully. We emphasize expository Bible teaching, cell group fellowship and Bible study, lifestyle evangelism and reverent, joyful worship "that in all things Christ may have the preeminence."

Our Beliefs

The Bible is God's written word

We believe 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 Holy 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.

We cannot save ourselves

We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.

Salvation is by God alone

We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.

Jesus died for all who trust in Him

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.

God is gracious to His people

We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.

The Holy Spirit is in all of His people

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.

Jesus will return

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

Live to give glory to God

We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
