Beliefs & Affiliations


Christ Church East is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), a family of local churches whose core beliefs are summarized in the 17th Century Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms.


With our sister churches, Christ Church Presbyterian and Christ Church InTown, and our newest church plant, Christ Church Beaches, we function as a family, sharing a common vision and values statement, weekly pastoral fellowship and sermon study, and resources for planting churches. This unity is intentional on our part. While we are separate churches, we share a common history and vision that continues to unite us. We are committed to seeking the renewal of all things in Jesus Christ by cultivating gospel-centered communities that multiply churches and build strategic partnerships in Jacksonville and around the world. Our prayer is that Jacksonville will reflect the reign of Jesus Christ as we leverage the strength of multiple congregations to bring the gospel to our city.
