Evergreen Church of Salem is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
We belong to a denomination because we believe that Scripture obligates us to participate with other congregations for the sake of doctrinal and ethical faithfulness.
The word “presbyterian” means that a congregation is led by a group of elders, that is, leaders who share responsibility for the faithfulness of the congregation.
The PCA is a denomination of congregations that affirm the importance of belonging to a larger entity in pursuit of faithful belief and practice.
The PCA has three important commitments:
Inerrancy-- God has revealed himself in the Bible, and all Scripture is true, authoritative and good in all it teaches.
Reformed theology-- God alone sustains and orders all creation, including the salvation of his people.
Mission-- God commissions his people to follow his own example by drawing all the world to love him.
