Knowing God

 

"The Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope ... the riches of his glorious inheritance ... the immeasurable greatness of his power ..."

Knowing What We Believe

"Always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you ..."

Knowing What God Has Done

"I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your wonders of old. I will ponder all your work, and meditate on your mighty deeds."

Knowing What Our Faith Is

"Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus."

EDUCATING THE CHURCH

At Providence we value the educating of the church through Reformed and confessional teaching. Christ himself was the perfect teacher and we seek to provide a well-rounded Christian education.

BIBLE

We are committed to teaching the Bible to both young and old. We focus on understanding how God has revealed himself and what he requires of us as he has disclosed himself to us from Genesis to Revelation.

THEOLOGY

We are committed to teaching the theology that flows from the Bible and gives a coherent and unified message to the church. We focus on past and present theological issues, grounding our theology in the Bible and the historic-orthodox position of confessional Christianity.

CONFESSION

We are committed to teaching the doctrines of the Westminster Standards. We focus on these clear Biblical doctrines as the most cogent summarization of what the Bible teaches. Therefore, we make use of the doctrinal statements of the Confession and the catechisms' questions and answers.

HISTORY

We are committed to teaching the history of God's works spanning from the dawn of creation and continuing until the consummation. God's providential hand has guided, nurtured, and protected his church in many ways, and so we focus on his wondrous works and deeds he has displayed among the sons of men.

What do we offer by way of education?

We offer Sunday School classes for all ages every Sunday from 9:30 AM to 10:15 AM. We also provide a Wednesday night time of study for adults and catechism classes for children from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. All classes are taught by either elders of the church or those the elders have approved. We welcome you to come and join us!
