Learn more about what it means to be a presbyterian.


Who are Presbyterians?

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.


"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
