Our Denomination


Tenth Presbyterian Church is a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). The PCA has a strong commitment to evangelism, outreach at home and abroad, and Christian education. From its inception, the PCA's purpose has been, “faithful to the Scriptures, true to the Reformed faith, and obedient to the Great Commission.”

The PCA was formed in the 1970s in response to the need for a strongly scriptural, evangelical, and Reformed witness to Christ in the United States. The PCA strongly affirms the unique, infallible, and inerrant authority of the Bible and the distinctive doctrines of the Westminster Standards and Reformed tradition—among them the 5 “Solas” of the Reformation and the doctrines of grace—while adhering to Presbyterian polity (government). The PCA is a distinctive Presbyterian denomination because its vision stresses reformation and revival both within the Church and throughout the world.
