The PCA is characterized by a robust commitment to an evangelical and Reformed theology expressed in terms of a number of commitments:
We are committed to the Scriptures and the historic Westminster Standards based firmly on a biblical theology that answers the questions and issues of each culture and people to which we minister.
We are committed to worship that practices the presence and power of God within the church to the transformation of the surrounding culture through biblical application in population centers around the world.
We are committed to the winning of new converts and their incorporation into the church through the ministry of the Word and to significant ministry to the needy through deeds of mercy and service.
We are committed to the freedom of every member to minister through spiritual gifts and also to the responsibility to do so under spiritual authority and loving discipline.
We are committed to dynamic, prophetic confrontation on non-Christian thought forms and behavior and also to the demonstration of the truth through the practice of holiness and love in Christian fellowship.
We are committed to guarding and strengthening the biblical family and also to a ministry to broken family forms such as the divorced, the widowed and the unwed parent.
We are committed to teaching and discipling men and women in the whole counsel of God and also to ministering to the needs of the whole person. For more information, you can learn about the Presbyterian Church in America here.
