Our Beliefs
First Presbyterian Church of Westfield, NY  is rooted in the reformed Presbyterian denomination PC(USA).  Our denomination follows the mantra, "Reformed and always reforming."  With that understanding, we reach, we reach back to the origins of the ancient church and stretch our hands out to the future.  Therefore, we remain in conversation with the church at different times and in different places as we seek to understand and exist in the changing of times. 
We believe in sovereign love God created the world and makes everyone equally in God's image to live as one community.  We believe in the triune God, to be professed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  We believe Jesus Christ is both fully human and fully divine and that we have been justified and reconciled to God through Christ.   Through grace alone we have received this reconciliation and we remain grateful for such sacrificial love.  With believers in every time and place, we rejoice in knowing that nothing in life or in death can separate us from the love of God.  We believe in the authority of scripture which leads and governs our lives.  We trust and depend on the Holy Spirit 's guiding as we live out the call to be disciples of Christ in this world.
