About Us

Our Church

Chalcedon Presbyterian Church is devoted to the one and only God, our Creator and Sovereign Who is three persons, Father, Son, and Spirit. We are dedicated to discipleship to the Son of God Incarnate in the person of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, the Word and Revealer of God the Father. We believe in and strive for obedience to the inspired, infallible, and authoritative written Word of God as it is interpreted to the Church by the Holy Spirit and hold to the system of doctrine most faithfully expressed in the Creeds of the Church and the Confessions of the Protestant Reformation. It is our chief goal and delight to glorify our God by proclaiming the Gospel of Christ and His Kingdom to our community and to the world at large as God provides opportunity according to His will.

We hold firmly to the truth that Jesus Christ is the center of all history, all meaning, and all knowledge of the true and living God. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a perfectly righteous life under the Law, was crucified for the atonement of His people, was buried to overcome the corrupting nature of sin, rose again on the third day from His death, and ascended to heaven to take His rightful place at the right hand of God with all power, authority, and dominion over all things in heaven, in earth, and under the earth as our Mediatorial King until the end of the world and the resurrection of His saints.

Our mission, as is the divine mission for all churches in all ages, is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which is the power of God unto salvation, for the regeneration and conversion of individuals, to teach and disciple unto righteous living, to bind the members of the body of Christ into oneness with one another and with God, to be a living and righteous influence in the place where God has placed us, and to do our part in this generation to establish the righteousness of Christ and the justice of God reflected in the Ten Commandments. We place our full confidence in the achievement of this mission in the binding and enabling work of the Holy Spirit in and among us that we may have no room to boast, but all room to glorify the Lord God, our Savior and our strength.
