Who We Are

bible4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions [sin] —it is by grace you have been saved.  Ephesians 2:4-5 (NIV)


Welcome to Pilgrim Presbyterian Church!  We are so glad you found our home page and trust you will find answers to many of the questions you may have about our ministry in Martinsburg, West Virginia.  However, nothing can replace the opportunity to meet you in person.  We would consider it an honor to have you join our community of believers as we focus on the Word of God – the standard and guide for our lives.  We hope you find your worship with us edifying, our educational offerings to you stimulating, and our times of fellowship enjoyable; endeavoring to nurture one another as we “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever.” (2 Peter 3:18)

Christ’s servant and yours,

Pastor Jerry Mead



In the PCA the elders have oversight of the flock of Christ.  Those in the office of elder, both individually and together, are to watch diligently over those committed to their charge.  This means they take an interest in the well-being of each individual as well as the whole.


In the PCA the diaconate is an office of sympathy and service.  It expresses the communion of saints found in the church, especially in their helping one another in time of need.  The deacons regularly care for the needs of those in the congregation and in the community.
