To proclaim Jesus Christ and faithfully follow Him, to build up Christians, to share Jesus with unbelievers, and to honor Christ in all things.
God has planted us as a Reformed Church for a witness on the Peninsula and in the surrounding area. We also serve with our denomination and alongside other faithful churches locally, throughout North America, and around the world; “for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea,” Isaiah 11:9.
We believe what the Bible teaches is accurately summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms.
Our worship is focused on God and shaped by His Word. We believe God calls us to worship and meets with us as His Body in worship through Jesus Christ.
A typical worship service includes singing psalms and hymns, reading Scripture, prayers, an expository sermon, offering, and a confession of faith. We receive the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper on the first and third Sundays.
We encourage children to be present and to participate in worship. There is a nursery provided for children through 3 years old.
Our Church Life
Worship is the high point for our life as a church, but we do more. We pray for one another, spend time with one another, and encourage one another.
Our official ministries currently include Sunday morning worship and Sunday School for adults and children. We have a monthly fellowship meal, monthly men’s and women’s breakfasts, and are continuing to develop new ministries.
For a number of years, ministers of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) in Virginia prayed that an OPC church might be established on the Virginia Peninsula. In the fall of 2018, God began to answer these prayers with a small group regularly meeting for Bible study, prayer, and fellowship under the oversight of Reformation Presbyterian Church (OPC) in Virginia Beach. In 2019, Sunday evening worship services began, and not long after, Sunday morning worship. Tested by the pandemic, the church plant met in numerous locations. In 2022, Matthew Walker was called to be our organizing pastor, and he was ordained and installed in November 2022.
We are a part of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC). We are orthodox because we are committed to the truth of God’s Word. We are presbyterian because we believe that Jesus Christ has given pastors and elders to lead His Church. And we are part of Jesus Christ’s one church, made up of all believers and their children.
