What We Believe
Sheffield Presbyterian Church
There are three major tenets that undergird our worship, our theology and our mission. These are a wholehearted commitment to:
- The Inerrancy of Scripture
- The Westminster Standards
- The Great Commission
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Preaching is the high point of our public worship and this is in line with a historic and Biblical tradition in every generation. Church life is more than preaching pure doctrine which is rightly heard: It is more than the right administration of the sacraments which are rightly received; however, the church is never less than these. Public worship on the Lord’s Day with two services is central to our doctrine of the church. This is the time when the sheep are primarily fed, nurtured, and cared for. It is not the only time, but our whole understanding of the congregation life is shaped around our delighting in the Christian Sabbath.
