Welcome to the online home of Resurrection Orthodox Presbyterian Church! We are a congregation of Bible-believing Christians, proclaiming the gospel of the risen Lord Jesus Christ and worshiping God in State College & Centre County, Pennsylvania.
As Christians who love the Reformation, we believe the purpose of life is to glorify and enjoy God. As a Reformed Church, we exist as a church to do these things together: to worship God, to walk in love, and to witness to uniquely good news.
What makes the gospel of Jesus Christ unique? Every other religion tells you how to save yourself. Only the Bible tells the truth: that we are all a lot worse than we think, but that God is far better than we imagine. All our efforts at self-deliverance are doomed. But there is a better way!
In the person and work of his Son, God has already done everything necessary to save us. By his life and death and resurrection, Jesus won forgiveness of sins and everlasting life for all who desire it. Jesus is the true King and only Savior, and he offers new life – his own resurrection life – to all people. All you have to do is trust him. Take Jesus’ word for it.
What is an "Orthodox Presbyterian"? An Orthodox Presbyterian is like an orthodox vegetarian - somebody who tries to follow the principles they say they believe. Just as an orthodox vegetarian tries to live consistently with the principles of vegetarianism, so an Orthodox Presbyterian tries to live consistently with the principles of Presbyterianism. An Orthodox Presbyterian is somebody who believes what the Bible says, and tries to put it into practice.
