  • I'd love to hear the response to Ann's question. Having been raised in the SDA church, I do have strong opinion on the subject. That said, we (myself and husband) have been regularly attending a PCA congregation since we moved South.

  • I was also looking for the doctrine of salvation? Where is it? What is the belief of HOW a person goes to heaven? by Truda on 04/26/2013 at 12:57 p.m.

  • I'm interested to see what the responses are to the Sabbath question by Meldra on 02/17/2013 at 1:58 a.m.

  • The conversation around salvation can be found under what Presbyterians believe about atonement and about grace. by KATIE on 10/11/2012 at 12:49 p.m.

  • I am surprised at the omission of the most important doctrine on the list--salvation from sin. by Thomas on 09/25/2012 at 9:54 p.m.
