What We Believe

Princetown Church is a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church denomination (epc.org).

Core Beliefs

All Scripture is self-attesting and being Truth, requires our unreserved submission in all areas of life. The infallible Word of God, the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is a complete and unified witness to God's redemptive acts culminating in the incarnation of the Living Word, the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible, uniquely and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit, is the supreme and final authority on all matters on which it speaks. On this sure foundation we affirm these additional Essentials of our faith:

1. We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To Him be all honor, glory and praise forever!

2. Jesus Christ, the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth. He who is true God became true man united in one Person forever. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. On the third day He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He now is our High Priest and Mediator.

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer


"The First Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of the Town of Princetown" was started in the year 1822 by missionaries from the First Presbyterian Church of Schenectady in order to be a "missions outpost" to what was then the "New York frontier." Since then, the church has been known alternately as "The South Princetown Reformed Church," "The Dutch Church at Princetown," "Giffords Reformed Church at Giffords, NY," "Princetown Reformed Church," and, currently, "Princetown Evangelical Presbyterian Church."
Present Day

In March of 1978, the hundred-year-old church building was almost completely destroyed by fire.  All that was salvaged was what was known as the Assembly Hall. A plan was enacted to build a new church a few hundred feet west of the original placement. This new building was dedicated in 1981, with an education wing added in 1995. The church congregation voted in 1998 to switch from the Reformed Church of America denomination to the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.

In July of 2022, Princetown Church marked its 200th anniversary by celebrating God's unchanging grace and His faithfulness over the past 200 years. We look forward with great anticipation to see what He will do in and through Princetown Church in the next 200!
