What We Believe
Collierville Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church, (USA). Our church, along with 41 other Presbyterian churches in the area, is a member of the Presbytery of the Mid-South and the Synod of Living Waters.
What makes us unique?
“In gratitude to God, empowered by the Spirit, we strive to serve Christ in our daily tasks and to live holy and joyful lives even as we watch for God’s new heaven and new earth praying, ‘come, Lord Jesus’.” – From “A Brief Statement of Faith”
At the core of Presbyterian identity is a secure hope in the grace of God in Jesus Christ, a hope that, by the power of the Holy Spirit, empowers us to live lives of gratitude: “In affirming with the earliest Christians that Jesus is Lord, the Church confesses that he is its hope, and that the Church, as Christ’s body, is bound to his authority and thus free to live in the lively, joyous reality of the grace of God.” (Book of Order F-1.0204)
This strong emphasis on the grace of God in Jesus Christ is our heritage from the founder of the Reformed tradition, John Calvin.
