Who Are Presbyterians?

Our Vision

Faith Presbyterian Church…

…sings a new song to tell the story of Jesus and his love.  We follow Jesus’ example and welcome all people.  We value the identity of each person and each unique song of salvation.  We are called to understand one another, to support and care for one another.

Faith Presbyterian Church…

…cultivates faithful relationships. Our relationships with God and with each other offer a peace and purpose that is reflected in our daily lives.  We want to inspire people to devoted service in their personal lives and in their communities.

Faith Presbyterian Church…

…gathers to worship Jesus Christ as Lord, share God’s Word, and serve others.   We are richly blessed with life-long learners, committed staff, and hardworking members with a wide variety of experiences of faith.  We have traditions of food, fellowship, music, care giving and generosity.  We use these gifts to promote justice, demonstrate kindness, and walk humbly with our God.

Faith Presbyterian Church

…offers the presence of Jesus Christ to make a positive impact on the northeast side of Indianapolis and beyond.

Who Are Presbyterians?

Who Are Presbyterians?

Presbyterians are…

…are part of the reformed tradition in the Christian Church, which affirms that Christ alone is Lord of all and grace alone is sufficient for our salvation. 

One of the unique features of Presbyterians can be found in our name.  Presbuteros, the Greek word translated as elder, is used 72 times in the New Testament.  Presbyterian churches are characterized by our leadership system which elects and ordains elders to serve, guide and lead the church.  

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), of which Faith is a member, was formed in 1983, with the union of two older branches of the Presbyterian tree.  In the PC(USA)  teaching elders – called by congregations to serve as pastors – and ruling elders – called by congregations to serve on a governing board – have joint responsibility for the life and spiritual health of both local congregations and the denomination.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)…

…carries on a tradition of careful and educated interpretation of scripture, application of God’s direction to all aspects of life and working to bring the kingdom of God to earth by participating in ministries of justice and peace.  We believe that Christians are to gather in the covenant of community to be the body of Christ together and that we are to be good stewards of all the gifts that God has provided. 

Presbyterians have a rather dour reputation.  Our founder John Calvin, a French attorney, looks rather grim in the engravings we have of him.  But, his writings reveal a man who delighted in the world God created and enjoyed the good company of those with whom he lived and worked.  He reserved his seriousness for anything that would keep God’s people from knowing the freedom, purpose and goodness to be found in Jesus Christ.  

At Faith…

…we are glad to be Christians who are Presbyterians!  We recognize that no denomination or congregation can meet the needs of all people.  Maybe Presbyterians are just the people with whom you can be the powerful and loving person Jesus Christ has saved you to be.
