We are affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) denomination.
PC(USA) is distinctly a confessional and a connectional church,
distinguished by the representation of elders—laymen and laywomen—in its government.
Our theology is reformed and our form of government stresses the active,
representational leadership of both ministers and church members.
Becoming an official member of Paoli Presbyterian Church comes with some perks:
Practically, you can reach greater potential for leadership in the church, such as being a deacon or elder.
Socially, when you're on the member's list you have more access to care, discipleship, and relationship from the existing teams of deacons and elders and pastors.
And spiritually, it's a discipline to commit to something or someone, to put down roots, grow deep, and be in for the long haul.
Overall, membership is a way to tell a particular community that you're worth their investment, that you're ready to love and be loved.
