OPC Interviews

The next and final step for our church’s transfer to the OPC is to have the individual members of CPC be interviewed in April by Elders from the OPC Presbytery of the Southwest, in order to be received as members into the OPC.  This interview is like any other interview that you have done to join a Presbyterian church – they simply want the joy of hearing your testimony and your profession of faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


Representatives from the OPC Presbytery of the Southwest will be available on Thursday, April 16 from 4:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m., Saturday, April 21 from 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m., and Sunday, April 22 from 12:30–2:00 p.m. Please call the church office to schedule your time slot of preference.


These are the questions that you will be asked as you meet with the OPC representatives:

  1. Do you believe the Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, to be the Word of God, and its doctrine of salvation to be the perfect and only true doctrine of salvation?
  2. Do you believe in one living and true God, in whom eternally there are three distinct persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit—who are the same in being and equal in power and glory, and that Jesus Christ is God the Son, come in the flesh?
  3. Do you confess that because of your sinfulness you abhor and humble yourself before God, that you repent of your sin, and that you trust for salvation not in yourself but in Jesus Christ alone?
  4. Do you acknowledge Jesus Christ as your sovereign Lord, and do you promise that, in reliance on the grace of God, you will serve him with all that is in you, forsake the world, resist the devil, put to death your sinful deeds and desires, and lead a godly life?
  5. Do you promise to participate faithfully in this church’s worship and service, to submit in the Lord to its government, and to heed its discipline, even in case you should be found delinquent in doctrine or life?
