Our Standards

As Christians we are committed to the authority of the Bible as our primary standard of faith and life. With the whole Church we confess the faith as articulated in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds of the early Church. As Presbyterians we also hold to the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms as secondary standards, which are received by every ordained person “as containing the system of doctrine taught in Holy Scripture.”

While the Westminster Confession and Catechisms give a full and systematic expression of the Christian (and Reformed) Faith, the following have particularly characterized the Reformed tradition:

  • an emphasis on the sovereignty of God in salvation and history,
  • an emphasis on the free grace of God in Jesus Christ,
  • an understanding of God’s dealings with man as covenantal,
  • an acknowledgment of God’s election of a people to worship and serve him and to exist as a light to the nations,
  • a comprehensive understanding of the lordship of Jesus Christ in all areas of life, and
  • a Christ-centered view of the Bible which understands the whole of Scripture as a record of salvation history (God’s acts to redeem his fallen creation in and through Jesus Christ).

The Rev. Jeffrey B. Wilson was raised on the plains of Eastern Colorado. His family belonged to the First United Presbyterian Church in Greeley, Colorado. He enrolled in Oral Roberts University and graduated with a B.A. in 1984.

Intending to become a minister in the Presbyterian Church he applied to Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, VA and was accepted into the Masters of Divinity program in the fall of 1984. During his course of studies at Union Seminary he served as a summer intern at Third Presbyterian Church in Richmond, VA and for a year at Highland Park Presbyterian Church in Dallas, TX. Upon graduation from seminary, in 1988, Mr. Wilson received a call to be an Associate Pastor at the First Presbyterian Church in Royal Oak, MI.

Five years later he moved to Leoti, KS where he served as the minister until 1996. It was at this time that he accepted a call into the Orthodox Presbyterian Church to serve the new mission work in Royal Oak, MI called Providence Orthodox Presbyterian Church. Mr. Wilson is married to Heidi and has three children, Seth, Hannah, and Rebekah.
