Our Mission
Faith Presbyterian Church seeks to serve God in worship, serve our church body in nurture, and serve our communities in witness

We serve God in worship

Our church seeks to serve God in worship according to His Word. The primary objective is God’s glory in sincere worship, not programs of worship. If God’s glory is the primary objective of our worship, it will also be the governing motive of all we do in worship. We believe this to be the general idea expressed in the “regulative principle of worship” (cf. Genesis. 4:3–7; Exodus. 20:2–6; Leviticus. 10; 1 Corinthians 11). Worshiping God’s way allows us to worship with a clear conscience, as we come in the name of Christ who shed His own blood for His church. We, therefore, seek to worship God with all of our hearts, our souls, and with all our minds.

We serve our church body in nurture

Our church seeks to nurture the body in maturity in Jesus Christ with His Word. The Bible describes this as a body in the growth of grace, fruitfulness, and holiness (cf. 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14). God’s Word, therefore, is central to our nurturing efforts, as we seek growth as His disciples (cf. John 13-17). Our church seeks to live out this new life in Christ, knowing that it is the Word working through His Spirit that sanctifies us and conforms us to the righteousness of God (cf. 2 Corinthians 5:21). From our growth, the body of believers also nurtures one-another in collaborative and hospitable efforts. As Paul says in Galatians 5:16-24, the fruits enable us to march in unison with the Holy Spirit and this kind of fellowship will bring us into unity with one another.

We serve our local and global communities in witness

Jesus came into the world to fulfill the redemptive plan of God, that is, to bring the Good News to a lost and fallen world (cf. 1 Peter 3:18). Our church seeks to fulfill the mission He gave His church and to take the Good News to our local and global communities. “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20). This command of Christ coupled with worshiping God and nurturing His children should motivate us to bring our Savior to the world.

Our Vision
Faith Presbyterian Church envisions a community that demonstrates maturity, love, and witness
When we serve God in worship, we envision FPC will become a maturing church that seeks to glorify God and enjoy him forever, meaning…

When we serve our church body in nurture, we envision FPC will become a loving church, meaning…

  • we will be a church that has an observable love (John 13:34-35).
  • we will be a serving church, where an environment of selfless love is embodied as we place the interests of others ahead of our own (Philippians 1:27-2:11).
  • we will be a church that celebrates God’s work in one another (Jeremiah 29:11; Luke 15:11-32).
  • we will be a transparent church, sinners proclaiming the glories of being a saint and the wonders of Christ (1 Corinthians 14:33).we will be attentive listeners as we apply biblical principles to our communal and individual relationships (Proverbs 22:17; James 1:19).
  • we will be a church that encourages hospitality and is hospitable (Romans 12:13; Hebrews 13:2).

When we serve our local and global communities in witness, we envision FPC will become a witnessing church, meaning…

  • we will share the blessings of Christ’s Church with those interested in our faith. we will intentionally pray for people interested in our faith, praying that God will give them the ability to enter into our community and that He will harvest the seeds of the Gospel that we will all be planting.
  • we will be a welcoming church, where guests are well-received with discernment and love.
  • we will be a multiplying church, where church planting (local, regional, and global) is a natural and organic part of church life (Matthew 16:18; 28:18-20; Revelation 7:9).
