IN ESSENTIALS ~ UNITY Click here to view EPC Video
The EPC has adopted a brief list of essential beliefs which all member churches support. The essentials define a church that is Presbyterian in church polity and reformed in our theology and church government, as well as evangelical in sharing the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ.
IN NON-ESSENTIALS ~ LIBERTY
In the EPC, less essential matters are left to the conscience of individual churches and believers. This includes such matters as the freedom of a local church to elect its own officers, to exercise spiritual Gifts and to own and keep property.
Although EPC churches may have differing ideas on non-essential matters, they all work together for the common good of the Church.
IN ALL THINGS ~CHARITY
A common theme running through all EPC churches is that we all show love toward one another, even when there are differences. A result of this has been a lessening of divisiveness and conflict and a directing of the church's energy and resources toward the spreading of the good news of Jesus Christ.
