We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA) headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. Presbyterians trace their history to the 16th century and the Protestant Reformation. Our heritage, and much of what we believe, began with John Calvin (1509-1564), whose writings crystallized much of Reformed thinking. One of John Calvin’s students, John Knox, brought the Reformed Christian faith to Scotland and founded the Presbyterian Church.
Presbyterians are distinctive in two major ways: they adhere to a pattern of religious thought known as Reformed theology, and a form of government that stresses the active, representational leadership of both ministers and church members.
As far back as 1837 the General Assembly declared that the church, by its very nature, is a missionary society whose purpose is to share the love of God in Jesus Christ in word and deed and with all the world.
Our congregation is one of 60 congregations in the Presbytery of Geneva, and part of the Synod of the Northeast. For more information, check out their websites:
