About the PC (USA)

The Presbyterian Church (USA) is a denomination in the Reformed tradition. Some of the principles articulated by John Calvin remain at the core of Presbyterian beliefs. Among these are the sovereignty of God, the authority of the scripture, justification by grace through faith and the priesthood of all believers. What they mean is that God is the supreme authority throughout the universe. Our knowledge of God and God’s purpose for humanity comes from the Bible, particularly what is revealed in the New Testament through the life of Jesus Christ. Our salvation (justification) through Jesus is God’s generous gift to us and not the result of our own accomplishments. It is everyone’s job — ministers and lay people alike — to share this Good News with the whole world. That is also why the Presbyterian church is governed at all levels by a combination of clergy and laity, men and women alike.

Who We Are

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA). We are a small, close knit community made up of people who live and work in Buckingham County, Virginia. We are yoked with our sister church, New Store Presbyterian Church, also located in Buckingham County. We have been yoked for over 100 years and enjoy the rich relationship we have with one another. We are also committed to the betterment of Buckingham County. We are blessed to have a wonderful relationship with the Discovery School of Virginia for Girls, with many of their students being part of our community. We also manage a food bank, which supplies food to many in the county. Many of our members are involved with community organizations, which include Historic Buckingham, The Chamber of Commerce, and the Friends of Buckingham Library. Regardless of who you are, whether you are young or old, single or married, find yourself in a good financial situation or struggling to make ends meat, have great faith or are barely hanging on by a thread, a regular worship attendee or someone who has not darkened the door of a church in years, or even if you are a UVA or Virginia Tech fan, we welcome you and hope you will become a part of our community.
