WHO WE ARE
We are a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church committed to the Bible as the Word of God, as summarized by the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms, as well as the historic creeds of the Christian church (e.g., Apostle’s and Nicene creeds).
We believe the Bible provides accurate knowledge about God and how to please Him, emphasizing the Father sacrificing Jesus on the cross for the sins of His people. We aim to share the joy of a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Mankind was made to glorify God and to enjoy him forever. Ultimately, when God calls his people to worship him, he invites them into his presence to give him glory, enjoy his grace, and be changed to be more like Jesus Christ by his Word and Spirit. The primary way God does this is by public worship together on Sundays, the Lord’s Day. We invite all to join us to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ and to become a worshiper of the true God revealed in Scripture if you’re not already!
WHAT WE HOLD AS TRUE
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and inerrant word of God. We worship the one, true, and living God; one God in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that all people have fallen short of the glory of God and need to repent and put their trust in the savior Jesus. We believe that we are saved from judgment by God’s grace through faith in Jesus.
HOSPITALITY AND WITNESS
Scripture calls Christians to show hospitality, especially to other believers and, where possible, to all. We believe that by opening our church and our homes to meals, visits, and community, the Holy Spirit will open avenues for talking about the gospel and welcoming all to public worship. Be on the lookout for opportunities to get involved with meals, Bible studies, and other fellowship groups at Providence!
Our vision is to see individuals and families in South Jersey worship God from generation to generation (Exodus 34:6-7), live the Christian life with love for and obedience to Christ (Matthew 28:20; John 14:15; Romans 1:5, 17), and witness in the Spirit’s power with hospitality for the saints and for the world (John 13:35; 17:18; Romans 12:13; Acts 2:42ff).
