A Message from Presbyterian Church U.S.A.

Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.

God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus , Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time.

Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.

More than two million people call the Presbyterian Church, (U.S.A.) their spiritual home. Worshipping in 10,000 Presbyterian congregations throughout the United States, they engage the communities in which they live and serve with God’s love.  For more information, visit http://www.pcusa.org/

HISTORY
The Mills River Presbyterian Church had an early beginning in a small log church erected on 10 acres of land given by Colonel James Brittain.   In 1830 a two-story building known as the Mills River Academy replaced the log building. School was held on the first floor and Church on the second floor. The arrangement continued until 1908. This was the first Henderson County School.
          Throughout the years, improvements were made to the Church which included the addition of Sunday School rooms, choir loft, manse, and the Fellowship Hall.  In 1955–60 we celebrated the one hundredth birthday of the Church by burying a Time Capsule in the cemetery containing many pictures and articles of the day which was opened in 2009.
          The improvements indicate a healthy and growing church and are an important and necessary part of Church History. But also included in the History are the present and former members, the changed lives, the mended hearts, the love and compassion shown others, the Bible study, the many prayers said, and the hymns sung in praise.
