First United Presbyterian Church
to the amazing grace of God made real in our lives
by the power of the Holy Spirit,
we are a community of faith called to witness to the Good News of God’s love
for all people.
Our congregation will be a vital, vibrant center of
faith and practice
where Jesus Christ is personally known,
where people’s needs are truly met,
people are sent;
scattered in effective ministry and mission
in the home, the marketplace, the community, and the world.
We will build our church on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ
who is Lord and head of the Church,
the rich heritage of our congregation.
We will embrace the wonderful diversity
of our God-given gifts,
yet value the common life of faith we share together
as followers of Christ.
As disciples of the Living Lord, we are called to:
to the glory of God,
care for one another in the community of faith,
minister to the needs and challenges of our individual members,
nourish growth toward faithful discipleship,
in ministry as servants of the gospel,
Work to establish local and international
respond in faithfulness to the changing issues of the world,
inviting all people to share in the joy of Christian faithfulness.
From the heart of a city set high on a hill,
we believe we are called to live the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ:
“Your light must shine in the sight of all people,
seeing your good deeds,
they may give praise to your Father in heaven.”
