Ingleside Presbyterian Church seeks to glorify God in our community and in the world by faithfully teaching His Word, equipping His believers for ministry, and building up His Church in faith and love.
We believe in the primacy of Christ and his gospel – that Christ died and rose again, and that by faith alone, we are accepted by God. And it is the same gospel of grace that transforms us to be more like Jesus, as we continue to live by faith in him.
We strive to develop people who know and love God through Christ, who worship him and serve him, who are growing in Christ, and who share his love with others.
We long to see people of all nations restored to a relationship with Christ, as they are liberated from captivity to sin. And every area of life is sacred, we long to see all creation restored to its original intent through Christ.
The Bible is God’s Word, completely true and trustworthy, our only authority for what we believe and how we live.
There is one God, who exists in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Humanity is created in the image of God and clothed with great dignity. Yet at the same time, we are fallen and broken, and in need of the grace of God to save us and change us.
Jesus Christ is the eternal son of God, yet he completely became a man, so he is the God-Man. He lived a perfect life, he died on the cross, he rose again from the dead, and he ascended into heaven and reigns at the Father’s right hand.
We are saved by faith alone, not by good works. Good works are the result of living by faith in Christ.
The church is the body of Christ, the central way he reaches the world with his gospel. The church is the place where Christians belong to worship, to grow, and to serve God and others.
Jesus Christ will come again to judge the world, and he will recreate a new heaven and a new earth, where all of those who believe in him will live with him forever.
