Presbyterian Church USA

Green Acres is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church USA. Among the guiding principles of our faith and denomination are the sovereignty of God, the authority of the scripture, salvation by grace through faith, and the priesthood of all believers.

What this means to us is that God is the supreme authority throughout the universe. Our knowledge of God and God’s purpose for humanity comes from the Bible, particularly what is revealed in the New Testament through the life of Jesus Christ. Our salvation through Jesus is God’s generous gift to us and not the result of our own accomplishments. It is everyone’s job–ministers and lay people alike–to share this Good News with the whole world. That is why the Presbyterian Church is governed at all levels by a combination of clergy and laity, men and women alike.
