We believe that knowing Jesus and his gospel changes everything. Churches, personalities and ministry programs on their own do not bring renewal; they point people to Jesus. Our passion is to see peoples’ lives transformed by the life-giving message of Jesus Christ.
Midtown Fellowship Church is a member church of the Presbyterian Church in America, (PCA).
At Midtown, we believe:
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is without error and contains everything we need to know about having a right relationship with God. The Bible is the basis for all of our essential beliefs.
God is one, yet he mysteriously exists in three persons (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit), who are to be equally loved, honored and worshipped.
All people are created in the image of God, and are therefore filled with dignity and worthy of honor and respect. At the same time, in our natural state people are opposed to God (or “sinful”), and because of this have been separated from him, and are without hope unless He graciously rescues us from our broken condition.
Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully man, and is the one and only Mediator who is able to restore the broken relationship between God and any person.
Restoration between God and any person (also called “salvation”) begins when the Holy Spirit gives the person a new heart, leading and enabling him or her to trust (have faith) in Jesus Christ for salvation.
Good works do not and cannot make a person acceptable to God, but they are the natural and necessary outcome of authentic faith in Jesus Christ.
The Church is the family of God, and consists of people who possess genuine faith in Jesus Christ. God desires for all members of his worldwide church, together with their children, to be active in a local church which meets regularly to worship God, to love and serve each other, to learn from the Bible, to observe the sacraments together and to reach out to the local community and the world.

This historical articulation of Christian orthodoxy, along with the Westminster Larger and Shorter Catechisms, is the theological constitution of all PCA churches—subject to the Bible, the Word of God.
