The State College Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) denomination, born of the Calvinist tradition. Today’s Presbyterian Church (USA) was created by the 1983 reunion of the two main branches of Presbyterians in America, separated since the Civil War. The church has over 2.9 million members, from all fifty states and Puerto Rico, united in the mission of Jesus Christ.
We do mission, locally, nationally, and globally, as guided by the General Assembly.
“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 the Brief Statement of Faith
State College Presbyterian Church has a current membership of approximately 1170 members. So far in 2012 we have welcomed 35 new members into our congregation with one additional new member class to be offered this year.
