What we believe
We are a Reformed congregation and member of the Presbyterian Church in America. This means we belong to a community of believers with congregations across the USA and Canada which identify with the church reformation movement of the 17th century. We are all committed to God’s Word and recognize as our official statement of teaching the historic Westminster Confession of Faith, which was written by believers in England between 1644-1649.
Spring Meadows Presbyterian Church exists to bring the resources of the historic Christian faith to bear on the city so that Christ may be known, loved, served, and worshipped, resulting in a spiritual, social, economic, and cultural difference in the quality of life in Las Vegas.
Gospel and Culture
The challenge in Western culture is to address the sheer ignorance of the Gospel on the one hand (Neo-Paganism and Postmodernism), and the distortions and caricatures of the Gospel on the other hand (Moralism, Legalism). The teaching and embodying of the Historic Christian Message (the Gospel) is the answer to these challenges. Our emphasis will be that only in Christ are we finally right with God and have the answer to our pathologies, our dashed hopes and dreams, and our deepest longings for acceptance, significance and approval.
Pastor Tim Posey has been a teaching elder for most of his adult life. A native Tennessean, Pastor Tim graduated with his MDIV from Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson. He has pastored three churches and planted two churches. He planted Spring Meadows Church in Las Vegas in 1988 and has prayed for the physical and spiritual growth of his congregation ever since.
The ruling elders of Spring Meadows Church support the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of the congregation through such acts as praying for and providing counseling to the people of Spring Meadows, making hospital visits to those who are ill, and providing phone support for members in need of guidance. The elders’ duties also include supporting and assisting the Pastor in the work of Spring Meadows, meeting monthly as part of the Session, meeting with brother elders and deacons to discuss the administration of the church, pray for the congregation, and to attend to the needs and challenges facing Spring Meadows.
Acting under the supervision and authority of the Session, the deacons of Spring Meadows Church serve to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress. They are charged with the development of the grace of liberality in the members of the church, and to appropriately collect and distribute the gifts of the people. They take care of the property of the congregation, both real and personal, and ensure all property of the congregation is kept in proper repair.
