• 2016 Men’s Advance

  • Where the Bible is highly regarded and faithfully preached

Welcome! 

OPC LogoThank you for visiting our church website. We are a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC), and it is our privilege to minister to families and individuals in the region around St. Louis, Missouri.

Our vision is to be a faithful, loving, and mature Presbyterian Church focused on Jesus Christ and his gospel. We are committed to God-centered worship services, regular biblical exposition, efforts in local outreach and evangelism, support for world missions, encouragement of Christian discipleship, cultural transformation, and gracious hospitality. Moreover, we see children as a great blessing from God, and therefore we include them as much as possible in our worship services and church activities. All are welcome to visit with us. 

Following our worship service (on Sunday afternoons from 1:15-3:00 PM) we have a fellowship dinner on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month (from 3:30-5:00 PM). You are welcome to attend as our guests. 

— Pastor Marcus Serven

Verse of the Month:

Isaiah 57:15 “For thus says the One who is high and lifted up, who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: ‘I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly, and to revive the heart of the contrite.’”

Hymn of the Month:

Trinity Hymnal #656 “Jesus, Priceless Treasure” Here is a moving hymn from the Reformation. It extolls the work of Jesus Christ as the One who redeems repentant sinners (Matt. 1:21), provides rest for the weary (Matt. 11:28), and restores the troubled soul (Matt. 11:29).

Core Beliefs:

The Solas: These seven “rallying cries” arise from the writings of the Protestant Reformers during the time of the Reformation (1517-1650). They accurately summarize what the Bible teaches about the doctrine of salvation and the Christian life…
— “By Christ Alone” (Solus Christus)
— “By Grace Alone” (Sola Gratia)
— “By Faith Alone” (Sola Fide)
— “Scripture Alone” (Sola Scriptura)
— “Glory to God Alone” (Soli Deo Gloria)
— “Before the Face of God” (Coram Deo)
— “After Darkness, Light” (Post Tenebrus Lux)
