The Fincastle Presbyterian Church is a member of the Reformed Family of Churches dating back to the Protestant Reformation. This family of churches includes some of the Church of England, (“Low Church”), he European Reformed Churches, the Church of Scotland and the Congregational Church. The reformed Church family follows John Calvin in recognizing God’s revelation through nature (natural theology) and through revealed Scripture. Thus is recognized the role of reason in interpreting and understanding Scripture as the guide for all spheres of our life. While there is no complete unanimity in doctrine, the broad consensus of belief can be found in these church’s Confessions. These, from the Apostles’ Creed through the Westminster Confession to the Confession of 67, are all available in the Book of Confessions of the PC (USA). Presbyterians, known as faithful and thinking people thus seek to express the fullness of God’s revelation through these confessions. By doing so, the congregation publicly shares their understanding of God’s will for the church and its service to the community and the world. This understanding is expressed through the worship and teaching of the church, reformed and always reforming.
