Our Beliefs

Delta Oaks is a biblical, confessional, Presbyterian church. Here is a quick summary of what we mean:


We love to study Scripture, because we believe the whole Bible (both the Old and New Testaments) is God's true word for saving sinners. We believe that the Bible is entirely trustworthy, necessary, and sufficient for our spiritual needs, clear in presenting the only Way to salvation, and the final authority for how we ought to live in this life (2 Tim 3:16-17). In short, the whole Bible points us to our gracious and merciful Savior, Jesus Christ (Luke 24:27).


We hold to the Ancient Creeds and Westminster Standards, believing that these provide an accurate and faithful summary of what the Bible teaches (2 Thessalonians 2:15; 1 Timothy 6:3; 2 Timothy 1:13). Having these clear, written-out statements means you won't have to guess where we stand, and you can compare what we teach with Scripture "to see if these things [are] so" (Acts 17:11). Being credal (i.e. orthodox) and confessional also connects us to saints down through the ages and around the world (Jude 1:3).


We are a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church (OPC), believing that Jesus, our Chief Shepherd, has appointed under-shepherds to care for His flock until He returns (Eph 4:11-14; 1 Pet 5:1-4). Delta Oaks is cared for by a body of elders who have been elected by the congregation. Following the pattern of the Apostolic Church, we are also united to other churches in order to support one another (Acts 15:1-4). We are regionally connected through the Presbytery of Northern California and Nevada, and nationally connected through the OPC's General Assembly.
