God brought North Creek Presbyterian Church into being in the summer of 1992. A small group of folks began meeting for worship in a home in Parkland, and shortly thereafter moved for Sunday morning worship and learning opportunities to the Park Springs Elementary School in north Coral Springs. Just before Easter 1996 we began using our first facility on Lyons Road in Coconut Creek, FL. In March, 2002, we dedicated our new sanctuary at the same address.
From the beginning God instilled a strong biblical vision for being a community church, one that would provide worship, learning, and service opportunities to the end that God might give people growing relationships with Himself and each other.
This vision includes keeping families together in worship and learning. It includes equipping people for their relationships with God and each other, teaching them the Bible and how to study it on their own, individually and as families. It includes getting small groups of people together for study and fellowship and service. It includes people having ownership of their ministry through the use of their God-given abilities. And in all this North Creek endeavors intentionally to mix age groups together and build a true sense of family.
We pursue these things from a foundation of being Protestant, in particular Presbyterians. Our denomination, The Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church, was established in America in 1782.
The word Presbyterian comes from the New Testament word for elder, indicating that each congregation elects elders who give oversight to the church. These elders represent the church on a regional (Presbyteries) and national (Synod) basis in meetings of the denomination.
North Creek Presbyterian Church and its denomination embrace the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms as expressing the system of doctrine found in the Bible.
