BELIEFS

 

God: There exists one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

Jesus Christ: Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, is the living Word.  He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven.  Jesus Christ will come again to the earth—personally, visibly, and bodily—to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.

Holy Spirit: The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts. He convicts us of sin and draws us to the Savior. He instructs and guides us into all truth, and seals us for the day of redemption.

 

The Bible: The infallible Word of God, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God's redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks.

Mankind and Sin: Humans are made in the image of God.  However, we are tainted by sin as it affects every area of our life.  We fail to follow God’s laws and are rebellious to His ways.

The Gospel and Grace: The Gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ has come to save all those who believe in him as Lord and Savior.  This gift of salvation cannot be earned.  It is God’s grace given to us through Jesus Christ.

The Church: The church is the community of believers who place their faith in Christ.  The church is beautifully referred to as the Bride of Christ.

A word from Rev. Amundson:

 

It is my joy and privilege to serve Fourth Presbyterian Church as Lead Pastor.  I am humbled by the opportunity to share life and ministry with such a wonderful group of leaders and passionate followers of God.  I'm amazed at the riches of faith in our church.  It's my joy to share the stories of what God is doing among us, and our folks have amazing stories!  My wife, Veronica, and I along with our three children love our home in Pittsburgh and our church family.
