Theology is a way of thinking about God and
God's relation to the world. The theology and faith of the
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A), or PCUSA, belongs to a larger tradition
known as the Reformed tradition or Reformed faith.
As the name
implies, the theological tenets and beliefs of the Reformed tradition
has its origins from the work of the Reformers of the 16th century,
particularly John Calvin, whose writings articulated much of what
Presbyterians believe. Among these are the
sovereignty of God, authority of Scripture, salvation by grace through
faith, and the priesthood of all believers. Reformed theology
emphasizes God's sovereignty over everything and humanity's chief
purpose as being to glorify and enjoy God forever.
