“Presbyterian” comes from the Greek word for “Elders” and refers to our understanding that the Biblical model for church government is based on oversight by a plurality of Elders, traditionally called the Session in the local church, and the Presbytery in a district that includes several churches. The Bible gives three general responsibilities to the elders of a church: Teaching, Ruling, and Shepherding. Our Teaching Elders are the ordained clergy who are examined by the Platte Valley Presbytery (Teaching and Ruling Elders in our district). Our Ruling Elders are laymen, ordained to the office after being examined by the local Session and found to meet the requirements of 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1.
Our vision is to see Platte Valley saturated with Gospel-centered reformed churches so that many people come to Christ and together our communities are transformed.
