Presbyterian and Spirit-Led

For those unfamiliar with the name "Presbyterian," it actually refers to a style of church government rather than a theological perspective.  Other Biblical styles of church government are "Congregational" and "Episcopal" or "Apostolic."  As with the presbyterian style, we are organized in four connected groupings (or judicatories). Our local church in Lubbock is governed by a Board (called a "Session") of Elders, elected for 3-year terms to oversee the spiritual condition and direction of our local congregation.  We are also part of a Presbytery (about a dozen congregations from West Texas to California) called the "Presbytery del Cristo."  Click here to see the responsibilities and ministries of a Presbytery.  We are then grouped with other presbyteries from Texas, Oklahoma and Colorado to form a Synod called "Mission Synod."  Lastly, we are part of the General Assembly of Cumberland Presbyterian Churches across the United States.

While being Presbyterian in government, we also long to be Spirit-Led in practice.  Jesus instructed the disciples that the Holy Spirit would come after Him and teach us and lead us in all things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.  We invite the Spirit of God to indwell our presbyterian system so the church administration is orderly and dynamically led by God.
