About Faith Presbyterian Church

Our purpose is to be a worshipping community who makes disciples by gathering in the name of God, gifting by the Holy Spirit, and going into the world to share the love of Jesus Christ.

In gathering, we encourage relational ministries by caring for and fellowshipping with one another. In gifting, we engage in educational and spiritual nurturing ministries. In going, we reach out in ministries of love, compassion and justice and invite others into relationship with Jesus. Through this vision and purpose, we affirm that “God created the world good and makes everyone equally in God’s image, male and female, of every race and people, to live in one community” (A Brief Statement of Faith, PCUSA). Therefore, we open our hearts, our arms, and our doors to people from all backgrounds, believing that we stand on common ground when we claim the indwelling presence of Jesus.

We open our arms and hearts and doors, we envision God blessing and growing this community in nurture, calling, ministry and membership as we anticipate growing a worshipping community with membership between 700 and 900 in the decades to come.
