Our Name

We are Reformed because we stand with those Protestant Reformers of the 16th century who sought to return the church to the authority of the Bible alone, and the Bible’s teaching that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.

We are Presbyterian because our church is led, under Christ, by “presbyters” (elders), elected by members of the church, and it is accountable to the “presbytery” made up of elders throughout the Upstate New York and Eastern Ontario region.
