is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of The Independent Presbyterian Church of Savannah based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

The Holy Spirit is our divine Comforter, Convictor, and Transformer.
The Church is the community of believers.
