PRESENT

What is a Presbyterian?

Tower Hill belongs to the Presbyterian Church (USA), a denomination which has approximately 2 million members and 10,000 congregations nationwide. Presbyterians trace their history to the 16th century Protestant Reformation and are part of the Reformed tradition.



The Reformed tradition celebrates “the Church reformed and always reforming.” In others words, there are always deeper truths to uncover and better ways of living a life of faith. The Reformed tradition affords room for a broad spectrum of people and perspectives under the lordship of Jesus Christ. Tower Hill’s community includes folks who sit on all sides of just about every major political or social issue of our day who are united in the love of Jesus Christ and in affirming essential Reformed beliefs.
