Crowders Creek ARP Church is a congregation of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church.

“We, the Congregation of Crowders Creek ARP Church, welcome everyone to come and worship God with us. Whether you are a faithful member, a treasured friend or an honored guest, we praise God for your presence.”

The Associate Reformed Presbyterian (ARP) Church was founded in Philadelphia in 1782. Crowders Creek ARP Church was organized in 1892.

We Believe
The Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church is a conservative, evangelical denomination which holds to the great truths of the Christian faith as revealed in Holy Scripture. The Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church adheres to the Westminster Standards, historic doctrinal statements which emphasize the following:

  • GOD IS THE SOVEREIGN CREATOR and ruler of the universe.
  • JESUS CHRIST is the Son of God, the only Savior and Lord of man.
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT is the initiator and enabler for the Christian life.
  • THE BIBLE is the infallible Word of God, the only rule of faith and practice and without error in all that it teaches.
  • SALVATION is by God’s grace, freely given through faith and not earned by any merit of man.
  • THE TEN COMMANDMENTS are the summation of man’s duty to God and man’s responsibility to his fellow man.
  • FAMILY WORSHIP AND TITHING are encouraged.
  • CHURCH GOVERNMENT is by the Presbyterian system, from which the denomination takes its name. As outlined in the New Testament, church government is by elders and deacons, elected in a democratic manner by each congregation.
  • THE SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM is administered to believers and their children. All forms of Christian baptism are recognized, and a second ceremony is not administered to those baptized in other churches.

BELIEVERS MAY JOIN the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church by profession of faith, reaffirmation of faith or transfer of membership from another denomination.

“Here at Crowders Creek Church the individual needs of a person and their family are important. We want to meet the needs of those in our community and our Church Family, while also reaching out to those who do not know Jesus Christ.”
