Our Denomination


Carriage Lane is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), which was founded in 1973. This denomination came into being because of a strong need for a scriptural, evangelical, Presbyterian and reformed witness for Christ. It is a denomination whose motto has been “true to the Scriptures, the reformed faith, and the great commission.” It is a believing and confessional fellowship committed to God-centered worship, the preaching and teaching of God’s Word, the sacraments, prayer, discipleship, evangelism, and missions. Its ministers and church officers affirm the great biblical doctrines of Christianity summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith. The PCA is a growing denomination. In 2015 we had 370,332 members and 1,861 churches and missions all over North America. Its missions agency, Mission To The World (MTW), is ministering in 86 countries with 586 career missionaries and 4,944 short term missionaries. The PCA is also represented by over 150 military chaplains. Other agencies of the PCA include: Mission To North America (MNA), Christian Discipleship Ministry (CDM), Ridgehaven Conference and Retreat Center, Reformed University Fellowship (a college ministry with ordained pastors on 140 campuses), Covenant College, and Covenant Seminary. Please see the PCA’s website for more information. Together we are lifting high the banner of the gospel of Jesus Christ both locally and globally to see His Kingdom grow.
