CHRIST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
A Congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Salt Lake City
The Ancient Paths
Our weekly, live call-in program on KTMW TV-20 Wednesday nights 8:00-9:00 pm.
We have sponsored numerous debates at the University of Utah with Latter-day Saints, Roman Catholics, and atheists.
Sola Scriptura - Sola Gratia - Sola Fide - Solo Christo - Soli Deo Gloria
We rejoice in the heritage of the Protestant Reformation and its recovery of the historic and biblical faith. We believe the Bible is the inerrant, infallible Word of God - - our only infallible rule of faith and life. It reveals that God is holy and we are not. God in His justice must punish our sins, but in His mercy, He sent His Son to take our place. We believe we are sinners saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. Owing everything to Him, we seek to glorify Him in all that we do.
Sunday morning worship is at 11:00 AM in our chapel at 8630 West Magna Main Street (2700 South) in the Salt Lake valley. We stress simple, reverent worship with expository preaching and the singing of psalms and hymns. We have a Sunday evening Bible study at 130 North 400 East in Orem, Utah, in the chapel of Orem Community Church, which we rent.
Jesus saves us not only from the guilt of sin, but from its power. We believe we will struggle with sin until we are with Him, but we are called to make use of the means of grace that God has appointed - - His Word, prayer, public and private worship, and the sacraments. Our goal is maturity, not conformity, but by God's grace, we look to mortify our sinful desires and keep ourselves unspotted from the world.
Jesus is not a means to our ends; He is the end itself - - to know Him and to be known by Him. He is our wisdom, our righteousness, our sanctification, and our redemption. The Creator of the Universe, before whom even the holy angels covered their faces, was the one who hung on a cross to redeem His people. He drank to the dregs the cup of the wrath of God, so that we might drink the cup of blessing.
To Exalt the Savior
To Promote True Holiness
When confronted by a vision of Christ in His glory (John 12:41), Isaiah cried out, "Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of Hosts. (Isaiah 6:5). As sinners redeemed by the mercy of God in Jesus Christ, we call on other sinners to turn to Jesus and find freedom and forgiveness.
