The Orthodox Presbyterian Church was founded in 1936 and has congregations throughout the United States, as well as established mission work in ten other countries. The OPC has roots in the Protestant Reformation and stresses the authority of Scripture and the sovereignty of God.
The term 'orthodox' refers to our desire to be consistent with the truth of the Bible as it is expressed in historic Christian faith. We believe in the Bible as the authoritative Word of God, the only infallible rule for our faith and conduct. We accept the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger Catechism and Shorter Catechism as a reliable summary of the teachings of the Bible.
