About Us

Who We Are

New Covenant Presbyterian Church is a Reformed Presbyterian church in the Bay Area located just a few miles from the San Francisco International Airport.  We are a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC) that desires to glorify God by growing in the knowledge of Christ and living lives worthy of the gospel.  We are committed to the ordinary means of grace: the Word, sacraments, and prayer, believing that these are the simple things God uses to grow his Church through the blessing of the Spirit.  We are committed to expository, consecutive preaching, believing that God’s people ought to be taught the whole counsel of God (Acts 20:27).

What We Believe

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God without any error in the original manuscripts and an infallible guide in matters faith and practice.

Historic Christianity

We hold as a church to the historic Christian creeds that the church has received for over one thousand years, particularly the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed, which affirms the historicity of the events of the Scriptures, particularly the coming of the Son of God as a man who died for sinners, was raised from the dead, ascended on high, and who will come again on the last day, as well as the doctrine of the Trinity, namely, that there is one God who exists in three persons.

Reformed

We believe that the theology of the Protestant Reformation accurately recovered the doctrines taught in Scripture. The particularly expression of Reformed Theology that we hold to as a church and as a denomination is the Westminster Standards, which consists of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, the Westminster Larger Catechism, and the Westminster Confession of Faith.
