Everyone is welcome at Selwyn Avenue Presbyterian Church. God calls us to love and support one another and our neighbors in authentic and honest ways.
Together, we carry with us the Spirit of God that has been infused in the people of this church for 75 years. We seek to bring the love, light and grace of God to all who wish to receive and participate in the wonder of the teachings, salvation and peace found in Jesus Christ.

At the Core of Presbyterian Beliefs, we believe in:
The Sovereignty of God
The Authority of the Scripture
Justification by Grace through Faith
The Priesthood of All Believers
We believe God is the supreme authority throughout the universe. Our knowledge of God and God’s purpose for humanity comes from the Bible, particularly what is revealed in the New Testament through the life of Jesus Christ. Our salvation (justification) through Jesus is God’s generous gift to us and not the result of our own accomplishments. It is everyone’s job — ministers and lay people alike — to share this Good News with the whole world. That is also why the Presbyterian church is governed at all levels by a combination of clergy and laity, men and women alike.
