  • Renovation Updates

    Our church has been around for more than 140 years and in July 2018 we threw a wonderful birthday party! Our church building, however, showed a few signs of wear, after 140 years of faithful service. The congregation organized some fundraisers throughout 2018, joined by a wonderful group of neighbors and friends. We were overwhelmed with the kindness shown to us and the generosity bestowed upon us. We would love to keep all our generous donors up to date through this page, which also contains the latest statement on the status of the renovation project on the buildings and grounds.

Testimonials

This is the church you are looking for! It's a very warm and welcoming faith community! I’ve attended services here several times when I’ve been in Utah, and I have always been as warmly welcomed and included as if I were a long time member. The young pastor’s sermons are impactful and thought provoking.

This church is like a family, abundant with love, kind, caring, considerate. Although it is a rather small community, they use it to their strength. There is so much warmth in this place. There is always a listening ear and always a laugh to be had. Please come join us for worship at 10:00 Sunday morning, and join us afterwards for fellowship, hot coffee, and loads of cookies and snacks!

What We Believe (Statement Of Faith)

  • We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
  • We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.
  • We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.
  • We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.
  • We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.
  • We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

NICENE CREED
We believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
begotten from the Father before all ages,
God from God,
Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made;
of the same essence as the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven;
he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
and was made human.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered and was buried.
The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again with glory
to judge the living and the dead.
His kingdom will never end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life.
He proceeds from the Father and the Son,
and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.
He spoke through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.
We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
and to life in the world to come. Amen. 

APOSTLE’S CREED
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead
.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic
church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen. 

THE CONFESSIONS AS STATEMENT OF THE FAITH OF THE CHURCH CATHOLIC
Taken from the Book of Order 2015/2017  
In its confessions, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) witnesses to the faith of the Church
Catholic. The confessions express the faith of the one holy catholic and apostolic Church in the
recognition of canonical Scriptures and the formulation and adoption of the ecumenical creeds,
notably the Nicene and Apostles’ Creeds with their definitions of the mystery of the triune God
and of the incarnation of the eternal Word of God in Jesus Christ.  

THE CONFESSIONS AS STATEMENTS OF THE FAITH OF THE PROTESTANT
REFORMATION

In its confessions, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) upholds the affirmation of the
Protestant Reformation. The focus of these affirmations is God’s grace in Jesus Christ as
revealed in the Scriptures. The Protestant watchwords – grace alone, faith alone, Scripture
alone – embody principles of understanding that continue to guide and motivate the people of
God in the life of faith.  

THE CONFESSIONS AS STATEMENTS OF THE FAITH OF THE REFORMED TRADITION
In its confessions, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) expresses the faith of the Reformed
tradition. Central to this tradition is the affirmation of the majesty, holiness, and providence of
God who in Christ and by the power of the Spirit creates, sustains, rules, and redeems the world
in the freedom of sovereign righteousness and love. Related to this central affirmation of God’s
sovereignty are other great themes of the Reformed tradition: The election of the people of God for service as well as for salvation;
 Covenant life marked by a disciplined concern for order in the church according
to the Word of God;
 A faithful stewardship that shuns ostentation and seeks proper use of the gifts of
God’s creation; and
 The recognition of the human tendency to idolatry and tyranny, which calls the
people of God to work for the transformation of society by seeking justice and
living in obedience to the Word of God.
