We take living for Jesus seriously. To this end we are Bible based with emphasis upon teaching and caring. Several Ministries operate within the church.
”Jesus said that he came that we might have life…and have it to the full. At its very heart life is all about Jesus. Jesus came into this world and lived and died and rose again that we might know God’s love and forgiveness and the new life that he offers each one of us.
Here at PPC our passion is to see people come to know God through faith in the Lord Jesus. Our desire is to grow as followers of Jesus as we seek to reach our city and reach the world with the good news of what Jesus has done.Peter and Katrina WhitneySenior Pastor
There is an early morning service at Scarborough followed by a morning service at Woody Point.
Aged Care worship services: Services are conducted at several ages care facilities on the Peninsula seeking to encourage in the faith these senior members of our community.
Each of these services seeks to provide Biblical teaching and encouragement to live out faith in Jesus Christ. The music at Scarborough is basically taken from Rejoice, the Hymn Book of the Presbyterian Church of Australia, while the services at Woody Point include more contemporary music as well.

What we Believe
Theologically we are a Reformed Evangelical church. Our core beliefs are:
We believe in the divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe there is one God in whom there are three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is the eternally existing, only begotten Son of the Father, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
We believe all people are sinful by nature since the Fall and are thereby justly subject to the judgement of God.
We believe that salvation from the penalty of sin is found only through the substitutionary atoning death of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is by his one true sacrifice that we can have forgiveness of sin & receive the gift of eternal life.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
We believe it is the Holy Spirit who convicts people of sin and brings them to faith and repentance. Only through the work of the Holy Spirit is the believer able to live a holy life that is pleasing to God.
We believe in the one holy universal church, the body of Christ, to which all true believers belong.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ will return in person and that he will then bring the full consummation of the Kingdom of God.
