God's Providence

At Providence Orthodox Presbyterian Church, we celebrate the fact that God gives us everything necessary for life and godliness, which includes provision for our lives here on earth and in the eternal life to come. Our motto is taken from II Peter 1:3, which says, "By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness."

We also appreciate the Reformed understanding of God's providence, which is summarized from the Holy Scriptures in Chapter 5 of the Westminster Confession of Faith, including that "God's providence extends to all creatures, but in a very special way God directs it to the care of his church, and arranges all things for its good." *
