About Remnant Church
The Remnant Presbyterian Church seeks to fulfill our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's great commission to make disciples of all nations. We want specifically to impact the campuses, the communities, and the world for Christ. We seek to fulfill this mission by challenging people to make a radical commitment to the local church, believing that it is through the church that God accomplishes His plan. Our aim is to produce kingdom workers who are faithful, available, teachable, and sacrificial by valuing worship, growth, accountability, and participation. Through the striving for these qualities, we will know that we are fulfilling God's unique calling for our church.
The Remnant Presbyterian Church is also a founding member of Acts Ministries International™, a community of apostolic churches committed to a common mission, spirituality, and leadership team.
"So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace." - Romans 11:5
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."- Matthew 28:19

One thing that sets the Remnant apart from many other churches is its emphasis on serious, committed church membership. We believe that the calling to follow Christ is a serious commitment requiring nothing less than the surrender of one's whole life into His hands. We believe that a Christian's commitment to a church should be as serious as his or her commitment to Christ because we believe that the calling to follow Christ and the calling to be part of a church body are inseparable. To be a Christian is to be part of a church. Click here for more information.

Our Four Core Values
Worship: We place much emphasis on Sunday worship, which includes the message and our singing songs to the Lord. However, Sunday worship is so much more; it is really submitting and aligning our will to the Lord. In order for that submission to take place, people must experience a revelation in their hearts. This is the kind of worship that we are seeking after.
Growth: The growth of the body is essential to the church and is largely achieved through the Bible studies used in the Small Groups. We believe that a correct understanding of the basic essentials of Christian faith, achieved through proper teaching and instruction, is critical for the development of the body of Christ.
Accountability: Every person who seeks membership at the Remnant is accountable to an accountability group led by a leader in the church. Thus, no member is without a mentor whom he or she is accountable to. Since the Remnant has always placed a heavy emphasis on the commitment to a local church, we seek to practice the principles of the confession of faith and accountability to the church by submission to church authority and discipline, which are described in Matthew 16 and 18.
Participation: We encourage people to serve the body of Christ, but believe that people need to be committed and become members of the church first. We are dedicated to raising up leaders and desire for our members to be actively participating in the five ministries listed in Ephesians 4:11-13.
Our Statement of Faith
The Bible: The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, the only inerrant, perfect rule of faith and deed.
God: There is only one God, and man shall worship only Him. God is a spirit, self-existent, and omnipresent, distinguishing Himself from all other gods and creation. God is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and love.
Trinity: There are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; He is the triune God; one in trinity, equal in power and glory. God created all things visible and invisible by the power of His word, and preserves and governs them, but God in His nature causes no sin. He does all things by His plan according to His own will and governs all things to fulfill His purpose, which is good, wise, and holy.
Man: God created man after His own image in knowledge, righteousness, and holiness with dominion over every living thing. Therefore, all men came from one source. They are brethren and kin.
Sin: Our first parents, being left with the freedom to choose between good and evil through temptation, transgressed the commandment of God. All mankind, descending from Adam by ordinary generation, sinned in him and fell with him in that transgression. Man, having the ability to commit sin (except original sin) and a corrupted nature, intentionally committed sin; so, we are justly liable to God’s just displeasure and punishment in this world and that which is to come.
Jesus Christ: God sent His eternal, only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to the world to save man from his sin and the corruption and the punishment thereof in order to give eternal life because of His infinite love. In Jesus Christ, God became flesh, and through Him, man can be saved. The eternal Son became true man and possessed two distinct natures in His person, eternally as true God and true man. He, being conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, in the womb of the virgin Mary, of her substance, born of her, yet was without sin. He obeyed the law perfectly on behalf of sinners and gave himself as a true and perfect sacrifice in order to satisfy divine justice. He did this for the purpose of the reconciliation of man to God. He was crucified on the cross, died, and buried. On the third day, He arose again from the dead. He is sitting at the right hand of God the Father, making intercession for His people. From there, He shall come for the resurrection of the dead, and to judge the world.
The Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit eternally proceeding from God the Father and God the Son, works salvation in man, convicts man of his sin and misery, enlightens man’s heart to know Christ, renews man’s will, exhorts him, empowers him to accept Jesus Christ who offers man the Gospel in grace freely, and works in us to bear the fruit of God’s righteousness.
Salvation: Before God created the world, He elected in His love His own people to make them holy and blameless. He predestined and adopted His children through Jesus Christ according to His pleasure and will, to the praise of the glory of His grace bestowed freely on the ones He loves. However, perfect salvation offered freely is so ordered to all mankind that they may repent from their sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior, rest upon Him and follow Him, obey the revealed will of God, be humble and conduct themselves in holiness, to the extent that whoever believes in Christ and is obedient unto Him shall be saved. The particular benefits that are accompanied with justification, adoption as God’s children, sanctification, and glorification are for the believers who are assured with God’s salvation and joy in this world. The means of grace which the Holy Spirit uses, in particular, are the Word, sacraments, and prayer.
The Sacraments: The sacraments instituted by Christ are baptism and Holy Communion; baptism of washing with water is to be administered in the name of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is the sign and seal of union with Christ, the promise of our regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit and God’s possession of us. Baptism shall be administered to those who make confession of faith in Christ, and to their children; Holy Communion as partaking of the bread and the cup shall be served in remembrance of Christ’s death, and is the witness of the seal of the benefit derived from Christ’s death with whom the believers are in union. Holy Communion shall be observed by God’s people until the day of the Lord’s coming, and is a sign of a promise of more faithful service into the Lord and a sign of communion with the Lord and His people, who believe in Him, and rest upon His atonement from which God’s benefit flows to us. The benefits of the sacraments are not found in the sacraments themselves or any virtue of him by whom the sacraments are being administered, but only in the blessing by Christ and the working of the Holy Spirit in those who by faith receive the sacraments.
The Church: All believers shall dutifully join in church membership with instruction, have fellowship with one another among the believers, observe the sacraments and other ordinances, obey all the laws of the Lord, pray always, keep the Lord’s Day holy, assemble with believers to worship the Lord and listen attentively to the preaching of the word of God, render offerings as God provides us abundantly, share with one another the mind of Christ, share also the same mind with all other people, endeavor to promote the expansion of the Kingdom of Christ upon the whole world, and wait expectantly for the appearance of the Lord in His glory.
The Resurrection: The dead shall receive rewards according to the good and evil done in this world before the judgment seat of Christ when they will be resurrected in the last day. Those who believe in Christ, and are obedient to Him shall be truly forgiven and accepted by Him in glory.
