Our Theology and Government:
Christ Presbyterian Church is a Reformed church in its theology and Presbyterian in its government. Simply put, Reformed means that the church is biblical in its beliefs and teachings while Presbyterian means that the church is led and governed by a Session (a body of godly men elected by the church to provide leadership and governance under the Headship of Jesus Christ and his word).
