What We Believe

“The truth of the Gospel is the principle article of all Christian doctrine...Most necessary is it that we know this article well, teach it to others, and beat it into their heads continually.” —Martin Luther


At Ridge Prebyterian Church you will not hear teaching that tells you to simply be a good person, or to try harder. You will not hear practical tips for success or life coaching. You WILL hear an honest assessment of how broken we truly are, and a joyful proclamation that IN CHRIST, we are more loved by God than we could possibly imagine. You WILL hear the sweet promises of the gospel returned to time and time again, in the Old Testament and the New.

By God’s grace, this is who we are, and who we will continue to be.


Our Affiliation

We are a Church of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) congregation. Founded in 1973, the PCA is a conservative branch of the Presbyterian Church. Learn more on the history, polity, and doctrine of the PCA here →

Our Confession

As a PCA Church, we have adopted the Westminster Confession of Faith as an expression of our doctrine and theology. It captures what we believe about the Bible, the Triune God, the substitutionary work of Jesus (just to name a few things). View the WCF in full here →

Our Teaching Style

With a desire is to proclaim the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27), we practice “expository teaching’, which is characterized most by working through the books of the Bible chapter by chapter, verse by verse.

Our Vision—“Nothing but Christ”

1 Corinthians 2:2 is our theme, our mission statement, and our purpose. As a church, we strive to know nothing but Jesus Christ. Which is not to say that no other words will ever be spoken at RPC, but rather, we want to make the gospel of Jesus the basis for everything we teach and do. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is not just the starting place in the Christian life. It is the beginning, middle, and end—the foundation for every aspect of following Jesus and the wellspring of deeper obedience and faith in Him.

“Nothing among you except Christ.”
—1 Corinthians 2:2
