Another way to learn about Presbyterian Beliefs is to study the catechisms approved by the 210th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). For those of you unfamiliar with the term, catechisms are summaries of the principles of the Christian faith, in a question and answer format (a centuries-old version of the FAQ).
Here is the text of a booklet produced by the Office of the General Assembly which explains the foundational principles of Presbyterian Church governance. It is a very good overview and summary of Presbyterian polity.
