Thank you for visiting the website of the Tacoma Bible Presbyterian Church and giving us the opportunity to tell you more about ourselves, introduce you to the ministries of the church and perhaps share one of our messages with you.
While we have been serving the Lord for more than seventy years, we realize we may be new to you. Our name, however, tells you a great deal about who we are and why we are here:
Our region is a beautiful place to contemplate the wonders of God’s creation and that display can certainly press upon our minds the power, the wisdom, and the goodness of God. However, it is in the Scriptures that we find out the fullness of God’s revelation to man. In the Bible we have a God-given testimony as to who He is and what His will is for mankind. We also find out about our sin and His righteousness and in its pages we find the Gospel–that is, the good news of Jesus Christ–who is the Redeemer of men.
Our church is governed by a session of ruling elders. The pastor is a member of the Northwest Presbytery of the Bible Presbyterian Church, and both he and a representative elder from the session attend an annual synod meeting. The synod represents the highest court of the church. Power, in the Presbyterian system of church government, travels from the bottom to the top—not from the top down.
Our theological position is that set forth in the Word of God and called either, the “Reformed Faith,” “Calvinism,” or “Covenant Theology.” The Westminster Confession of Faith and its catechisms comprise our system of theology and they are available online from several sources.
But Heritage has a much wider witness to the community and ministers to the entire region. We are especially thankful to be able to offer a quality Christian education to the military families in our area. If you would like to know more about this ministry of the church, please follow the Heritage Christian School link on our web page.
We would love to have you visit, and if you come, please give us the opportunity to meet you and talk with you personally. Thank you again for your interest and may God bless you.
Grace and Peace,
Tacoma Bible Presbyterian Church
