Who We Are
We are a church located in California, Maryland.
Having begun morning worship services in 2005, Grace and Peace is an established church in central St. Mary's County, Maryland, committed to meeting the spiritual needs of our Southern Maryland communities with the resources of the historic Christian faith.
We are a reformed Presbyterian church which seeks to worship God in continuity with the historic church. Our beliefs and worship are rooted in the ancient Christian faith, in the church of the earliest followers of Jesus. We believe that the historic Christian faith—the faith communicated in the Holy Scriptures—is both completely true and powerfully life changing. We are committed to those ancient statements of the Christian faith known as the "ecumenical confessions" — the Nicene Creed and the Definition of Chalcedon. We also are committed to what is known as the Reformed theological tradition through our subscription to the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms (documents produced in the 17th century at Westminster Abbey in London).
Grace and Peace Presbyterian Church is affiliated with the Mid-Atlantic Presbytery of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
