St Paul Presbyterian Church

We meet for worship each Lord’s Day afternoon at 12 noon in the sanctuary of West Haven Baptist Church, located off McKamey Road near Cumberland Estates and Western Avenue in northwest Knoxville.

Reformational
The term “Reformed” defines both our system of doctrine as well as our historic 16th century Reformation-al roots. As an historical church, we stand in a long line of believers who embrace the ancient Apostolic, Nicene, and Chalcedonian creeds; while as a Protestant church, we are in essential agreement with the great confessions of the Reformation, including the Augsburg Confession, the 39 Articles, the Three Forms of Unity, and the Westminster Confession of Faith of 1646.

As a Bible-believing, Reformational church, we hold that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone on account of the completed cross-work of our Lord Jesus Christ alone. As a community of believers, we are committed to:

The verbal, plenary inspiration, inerrancy and infallibility of the Holy Scriptures.
The “solas” of the Reformation: Sola Scriptura, Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Solo Christo, and Soli Deo Gloria.
The Westminster Standards (1646)
The preaching of the Word, the exercise of church discipline and the right celebration of the sacraments

Worship
Worship is a God-centered, not a man-centered activity; and as such, it involves the participation of all worshippers—the man in the pew no less than the one behind the pulpit. Rather than viewing the congregation as an audience and ministers as performers, in corporate worship, the LORD is the only member of the audience and we the worshipers are the performers.

The 16th century magisterial Reformers—Luther, Calvin, Cranmer, Bucer, Knox, and others—applied this principle by (1) restoring the reading & preaching of God’s Word in the vernacular (rather than in Latin); (2) instituting congregational singing of the Psalms, the Ten Commandments & the Creeds; (3) writing unison, congregational prayers as well as making room for extemporaneous ones; and (4) recovering the frequent celebration of the Lord’s Supper using both elements while sweeping away the superstitious beliefs and practices which were out of accord with the Scriptures.

But the Reformers were guided by an even more fundamental principle: Worship must be according to and limited by biblical commands, patterns, precepts and examples. The only worship, therefore, that is glorifying and honoring to the LORD is that which he prescribes in his Word.

St. Paul Presbyterian is an affiliate of the Reformed Presbyterian Church General Assembly (RPCGA) (www.rpcga.us) and is pastored by the Rev. Dave Queener.
