OUR HISTORY

Founded in 1807

Chartered in 1807, Columbia Presbyterian Church (USA) stands in the heart of Columbia Pennsylvania. Over the years, Columbia Presbyterian suffered a loss of membership and vitality as the borough of Columbia faced the same challenges of other American towns who had once been thriving industrial communities.

In 2004, the Rev. David Powers was called as a Designated Pastor, and the journey began for the restoration of this historic congregation as a beacon of community ministry.

"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me...Truly I say to you, as you did it to the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.”"

- Matthew 25

OUR VALUES

Columbia Presbyterian Church is a Christian community of believers founded on the ideals of the Protestant Reformation and based on the concept of democratic rule under the authority of God. The word Presbyterian comes from “presbuteros” – Greek for “elder.” It refers to the system in apostolic times of choosing leaders from among the wisest members of the church. All that is required to be a Presbyterian is to confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior, to trust in his forgiveness and salvation, and to seek to follow Christ and Christ’s example for living. Anyone who can be a Christian can be a Presbyterian
