Westminster Presbyterian Church
Core Values and Mission Statement

Westminster Presbyterian Church is a Christ centered Bible-based Church, seeking to glorify God in all that we do so that we may enjoy His presence now and forever.  Therefore, we will
LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS, and SERVE OTHERS
so that we may become a vibrant community
reaching up and reaching out.

Christ Centered

Jesus Christ is at the center of all church life at Westminster Presbyterian Church.  Worship, teaching, service, fellowship and evangelism grow out of our joyful response to what God the Father has done in sending His Son to be our Savior and Lord.  Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we humbly stand on every promise that as we grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, we are being transformed into His likeness.   John 14:6, Acts 4:12, 1 John 3:2

Biblically Faithful

We believe that all Scripture is the essential and trustworthy record of God’s self-revelation and the unfailing standard for our rule of faith and life.  In obedience, we seek to learn and grow under the authority of God’s Word.  This happens through faithful biblical preaching and teaching, as well as time spent in personal Bible study. 2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12, John 14:21

Community

By God’s design, we worship and glorify the living God and grow as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in community.  It is in community where the people of God give and receive encouragement, develop and share gifts for ministry, and pray, love and serve one another.  At Westminster Presbyterian Church, people from all walks of life are warmly welcomed, experience genuine Christian community, and find a place to grow spiritually and serve passionately.    Hebrews 10:25, Ephesians 4:12, Romans 12, 1 Cor. 12

A Witness to the World

A Christian’s response to a growing, thriving relationship with Jesus Christ spills over into serving others.  Following the compassion of Christ and His mandate given in the Great Commission, we seek to demonstrate God’s extravagant love by sharing the good news of the Gospel and serving those in need locally, nationally and internationally.  Matthew 28:18-20, Galatians 6:2
