What We Believe

For over 200 years, Presbyterians have been responding to the call of Jesus Christ, taking the gospel into all the world and bearing witness to Christ’s saving love to the ends of the earth. Today the Holy Spirit is still on the move, calling us to share in what God is doing in the world. As your partner in Christ’s service, the Presbyterian Mission Agency is faithfully working to inspire, equip and connect all Presbyterians to do Christ’s mission, bringing together congregations, worshiping communities, mid councils, mission networks and other parts of the church ecosystem as they nurture and shape disciples and serve Christ in the world.

Presbyterians are distinctive in two major ways. We 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.

Presbyterians confess their beliefs through statements that have been adopted over the years and are contained in The Book of Confessions. These statements reflect our understanding of God and what God expects of us at different times in history. Even though we share these common beliefs, Presbyterians understand that God alone is lord of the conscience, and it is up to each individual to understand what these principles mean in his or her life.

Here at New Deliverance Church, we confess our faith through


I believe in God the father, Almighty, maker of Heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ His only son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius  Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; the third day He arose from the dead.   He ascended into Heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;  from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the church universal,  the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection  of the body and life everlasting.


For I was hungry and you gave me food…” — Matthew 25:35
