A Place of Grace

What We Believe

Shallowford Presbyterian Church is a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA), a Protestant and Reformed denomination. Our beliefs are best summarized in our denomination’s  Brief Statement of Faith.


Why We Worship

We worship because we have been created by a generous and loving God and given the gift of grace in Jesus Christ. Our worship is a joyful and faithful response to the love of God, and it offers us a regular reminder that the mystery and majesty of God are beyond our ability to describe or explain. We worship when words and concepts fail us. We worship, in the words of the Apostle Paul, “the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are God’s judgments and how inscrutable are God’s ways!”  We worship in a variety of ways, not just on Sunday mornings but throughout the week, in the hope that our lives themselves might be praise!
