ABOUT US

 

For over 60 years, God has faithfully accomplished His ministry through this Body of Christ called Colonial. Born from a church plant Sunday school called Boone Church, Colonial Presbyterian Church was established in 1953 at 9500 Wornall Road, Kansas City, MO. Our Overland Park, KS campus, near Quivira and 135th Street, was opened in 2002, making us one church in two locations.

OUR BELIEFS

 

As members of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church we hold tightly to the Essentials of Our Faith as laid out by the EPC. We also maintain the system of doctrine found in the Westminster Confession of Faith. Beliefs are often best discussed in dialogue. Accordingly, our pastors would love the opportunity to talk with you about the beliefs of Colonial.

 

Here is a brief overview of what we believe:

 

  1. There is one God who is revealed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all with unimaginable power, goodness, and love. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

 

  1. All humans have dignity because they were created by God in His own image. Although we were created by God to enjoy him and bring him glory, we all disobey him. This is sin. Because of this sin, we are separated from God, each other, ourselves, and creation. The only way to be restored and reunited with God is by his grace, given to those who repent and place their faith in Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:27; Romans 3:23; Titus 3:3-6)

 

  1. Jesus is the Son of God, fully human and fully God. He lived a perfect life and offered himself as a sacrifice for our sin by dying on the cross. Three days later he rose from the dead, forever defeating death. Through faith in Jesus our sins are forgiven and we are restored before God. Jesus now reigns forever in heaven. He will come again to judge everyone who has ever lived. (John 1:14; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Matthew 24:36-44)

 

  1. God uniquely reveals himself to us through the Bible, the 66 books of the Old and New Testament. The Bible is authoritative and tells us how to have a relationship with God, what we are to believe, and how we are to live. Because it is God’s word, the Bible should be believed, trusted, and obeyed in life and in faith. (Matthew 4:4; John 17:17; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

 

  1. The Holy Spirit lives in those who put their faith in Jesus for their salvation, helping them to become more like Christ. (John 14:26; Romans 8:26; Ephesians 1:13-14)

 

  1. God is at work to redeem and reconcile all that he has made to himself. We believe he is doing this through the local church. He invites everyone who is willing to follow Jesus to join his church. (Isaiah 11:6-9; Matthew 18:18-20; Revelation 21:1-5)

 

  1. All those who call Jesus their Lord and Savior are to BLESS others in the places that they live, work, play, and learn, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and inviting them to discover who God is. (Genesis 12:2-3; Matthew 28:18-20)
