The scriptures are a record of God’s revelation to humanity and attest to God’s self-revelation in Jesus Christ. As the inspired word of God, the scriptures inform the work and witness of the First Presbyterian Church of Glendale.
The scriptures of the Old and New Testaments testify to Jesus Christ who is Lord of all things, including the Bible. The Bible points us toward its author, the God of Israel who reveals Himself to us in Jesus as the savior of the world.
In the Reformed tradition, the Word is always joined with the Sacraments in the formation of the people of God.
“In Christian worship Jesus Christ is truly present and active among us, by the power of the Holy Spirit, through the gifts of Word and Sacrament. Wherever the Scriptures are read and proclaimed and the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are celebrated, the Church bears witness to Jesus Christ, the living Word, and proclaims the mystery of faith. Through these means of grace, God imparts and sustains our faith, orders our common life, and transforms the world. Through these same acts of worship, we share in the life of the Spirit, are united to Jesus Christ, and give glory to God.” The Book of Order, W-1.0106
