First Presbyterian Church of Clarksdale is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church in America (“PCA”), which was formed to be a denomination that is “Faithful to the Scriptures, True to the Reformed Faith, and Obedient to the Great Commission.”
The PCA is an Evangelical and Reformed Presbyterian denomination.
By Presbyterian, we describe our representative form of church government. Local churches are governed by a “Session” of “presbyters” (elders), elected by the members of the congregation. Representatives of local churches within a geo¬graphical area compose a “presbytery.” Representatives of presbyteries meet annually at “General Assembly.” Thus, through the combined efforts and resources of all of the churches, we are enabled to advance God’s Kingdom much more effectively. The Committees and Agencies of the PCA help lead this Kingdom work.
By Reformed, we mean that we are connected to the teachings of the historic church and the doctrinal beliefs recov¬ered by the Reformation. These doctrinal beliefs are expressed hi the Westminster Confession of Faith with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms. All offi¬cers of the Presbyterian Church in America must personally subscribe to and uphold the teachings of the Westminster Confession of Faith.
By Evangelical, we mean that we emphasize the gospel (good news of salvation) through faith in Jesus Christ, as well as affirming other orthodox Christian doctrines and holding to the inerrancy of Scripture.
