Dear Tucker neighbors and friends,
Amy and I, along with our family and entire launch team, feel so blessed to participate in starting a new church in Tucker, adding to the spiritual life and ministry in our community. You can read a little more about our vision below, but more importantly, we would love to have you to join us at one of our Sunday worship services. You'll find our worship reverent and joyful and our community loving and welcoming.
In the meantime, if you would like to find out more information, please email or text me and I'd be glad to chat and share more, or pray with you.

If you live in Tucker, you may be asking - does Tucker really need another church?
Good Question! We've asked ourselves the same thing.
One of our values is the importance of the church. The local church, as described in the New Testament, is the place where God's people gather for worship, are cared for, pray together, are nourished by His Word, and grow in their faith. But also, the church is God's primary means for reaching a community and ministering to its many needs.
If you think of it this way, Tucker could use 10 more churches! Our desire is to work together, loving our neighbors in the name of Christ, and fulfilling God's purposes for His church.
"Presbyterian" is a strange word, in a sense. It comes from the Greek word presbuteros, which is the New Testament word for elder. Presbyterians believe that the use of the word elder in the New Testament is synonymous with the use of the word for overseer or bishop (Titus 1:5-9; Acts 20:17-38), and that the Biblical model for spiritual leadership in the church is to have multiple elders that shepherd and oversee the flock of God (1 Timothy 3).
We trace our roots back to the Protestant Reformation of the 16th and 17th centuries, which we believe 1.) restored the Scriptures as the authoritative and inspired Word of God (Hebrews 4:12-13, 2 Peter 1:19-21), and 2.) recovered the Gospel, the Bible's teaching that people are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8).
This understanding of what the Bible teaches about itself, the church, and faith is summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith (first adopted by the church of Scotland in the 1640s) and is found all throughout the world.
