What We Believe

Bay Presbyterian Church is full of people who live out their Christian faith in remarkable and wonderfully diverse ways. However, we unite in affirming the essential truths of our denomination, the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC), which are more fully spelled out in the Westminster Confession of Faith. In addition, the EPC has set forth some Position Papers which address topical issues such as abortion, divorce, homosexuality, and the sanctity of life.

We believe that what unites us as Christians is far more important than what divides us, and that we should be respectful and loving toward those whose beliefs differ from our own. Our denominational motto reflects this approach: β€œIn essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; and in all things, charity.”
