What is Our Worship Service Like?
Our worship service is simple and reverent.
Worship is a dialogue in which we meet God. God speaks to us through His Word and sacraments, and we respond in prayer, confession, giving, and singing.
The preaching of God’s Word makes up the chief part of the service, in which the pastor reads from a specific text from the Bible, demonstrates how it is fulfilled in Christ, and explains its meaning and significance in our lives.
What Is Covenant Worship?
We partake in covenant worship, worshiping with different ages and diverse backgrounds together, as a reflection of how we will worship in heaven eternally.
What Do We Sing?
For worship, Theophilus has delighted in singing from the theologically rich and beautiful hymns of the Trinity Psalter Hymnal for worship to maintain uniformity with our denomination, the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
At our Bible studies, we enjoy singing from a variety of traditional and contemporary gospel songs and hymns.
How Would We Describe The Teaching?
We are reformed and confessional, subscribing to the Westminster Standards. We desire to preach and teach Christ from all of Scripture.
What makes Theophilus distinct?
Theophilus Orthodox Presbyterian Church is

What Is Our Community Like?
The first word that comes to our mind is family.
We really are a family, a spiritual heavenly family. We’re made up of people from a wide array of ages and a diverse panorama of backgrounds. If you come to visit us, we may look like an interesting group of people because it may look like we have very little in common. That’s why it’s so clear that it is the almighty God at work in our church, uniting us as one body to help each other to run this race with joy and strength!
