What We Do


Developing life-changing relationships in Christ isn't just what we do, it's who we are. 

Faith Presbyterian Church is committed to the training, ministry, and care of all God's people, from our neighbor who is next door to our neighbor on the other side of the globe.  The church has always been deeply invested in social, economic, and other advocacy initiatives.  We believe the efforts fulfill our mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Each of us has an important, God-given role to play. The Lord instructed us to take His message of love and forgiveness to every person in every community, in every city, in every country of the world. Will you help? 

MINISTRY & COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Our ministry and outreach initiatives are God's hands extended to our community.  To restore hope and provide opportunities for people to become all that God intends them, the members of Faith Presbyterian Church put Christian faith into action through service to the community. We serve in many different ways, but there's one common thread- we build lasting and meaningful relationships by sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all people and to reflecting the love of Christ in our daily lives.

SPIRITUAL ENCOURAGEMENT & GODLY COUNSEL

We all go through highs and lows in the cycle of life.  Faith Presbyterian Church offers spiritual, emotional, and personal encouragement to individuals by helping them apply biblical principles to their everyday life situations. The Bible is filled with truths on dealing with anger, unforgiveness, grief, addictions, relational, spiritual and mental health issues. If you are facing challenges such as grief, marital and family concerns, sexual abuse,  financial issues, and/or substance abuse, we are here to help make you complete and whole as the Lord intended.

SPECIAL OCCASIONS

  • BAPTISMS
    The Bible tells us we don’t get baptized to get saved; rather we are baptized because of our relationship with the One who died so we can have eternal life. It is therefore extremely important that baptism occur after a person has made a conscious decision to repent of their sins and profess their faith in Jesus Christ.
     
  • CHRISTENINGS
    Faith Presbyterian Church recognizes christenings as the act of giving back to God the gift He has given to parents. It is an act of worship, thanksgiving, dependence, trust and commitment. The practice of baby blessing has been modeled throughout the Bible. 
     
  • FUNERALS
    The death of a loved one often opens a floodgate of emotions. Faith Presbyterian Church assists families during these difficult times by providing support, comfort and help in designing a meaningful funeral or memorial service.
     
  • WEDDINGS
    Faith Presbyterian Church would love to host your special day. You are welcome to tour our sanctuary, church facilities, and grounds to determine if we  can accommodate your needs. Before getting married at Faith, you must undergo counseling from the pastoral staff.

THE SCRIPTURES

  • We believe that "all Scripture is given by inspiration of God." (2 Timothy 3:16). We understand this to mean that the whole Bible is inspired in that holy men of God "were moved by the Holy Spirit" (2 Peter 1:21) to write the very words of Scripture.
  • We believe that this divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of Scripture as it appeared in the original manuscripts.
  • We believe that the whole Bible in the originals is therefore without error. We believe that all the Scriptures center around the Lord Jesus Christ in His person and work, in His first and second coming, and hence that no portion, even of the Old Testament, is properly read, or understood, until it leads to Him.
  • We also believe that all Scripture was designed for our practical instruction. (Luke 24:27, 44; John 5:39; Rom. 15:4; 1 Cor. 10:11; 2 Tim. 3:16)

THE TRIUNE GOD

We believe that there is only one true God. He is revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature. (John 4:23-24; Matt. 28:19)

  • God the Father

    • God, as Father, reigns over His entire universe with providential care.
    • He is all-powerful, all loving, all knowing and all wise.
    • He is fatherly in attitude toward all men but is Father, indeed, to those who have become children of God through Jesus Christ, Who will deliver them into the Father's hands. (Gen. 1:1; 1 Chron. 29:10; Jer. 10:10, Matt. 6:9; Acts 1:7; Rom. 8:14, 15; 1 Cor. 8:6; 1 Cor. 15:24; Eph.4:6)
  • God the Son

    • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man.
    • This redemption He accomplished by voluntarily giving Himself as a sinless, substitutionary sacrifice on the cross, thereby satisfying God's righteous judgment against sin. After substantiating the accomplishment of that redemption/justification by His bodily resurrection from the grave, He ascended to the right hand of His Father where He intercedes on behalf of those who trust Him. (Luke 1:34; John 1: 1, 2, 14, 18; Rom. 3:24-26, 8:34)
  • God the Holy Spirit

    • We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Person who convicts each person of sin (righteousness and judgment), that He alone brings new life to those who are spiritually dead; that He baptizes (or places) all believers into the one true church, which is the Body of Christ; that He indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of final redemption, bestows spiritual gifts upon them, fills (controls) those who are yielding to Him.
    • Every believer is called to live so in the power of the indwelling Spirit that he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh but will bear fruit to the glory of God. (John 3:3-8, 14:16, 17, 16:7-11; 1Cor. 12:7-11, 13; Eph. 4:30, 5:18)

CREATION

  • We believe that man was created directly by and in the image of God. We believe that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life, by direct act. (Gen. 1:1; John 1:3; Col. 1:16, 17)

THE FALL OF MAN

  • Although man was created in the image of God, he fell into sin and is lost; this is true of all men, and except a man be born again by the Holy Spirit, he cannot see the kingdom of God. (Gen. 1:26, 27; John 3:3; Rom. 3:10, 23)

ATONEMENT FOR SIN

  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe on Him are redeemed by His shed blood. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body, of our Lord Jesus Christ and in His ascension into heaven; He is our High Priest and Advocate. (John 1:1-3, 14; 3:1-7, 16; Heb. 10:4-14; 1 John 2:2)

SALVATION

  • We believe that salvation is the gift of God's grace.
  • It cannot be gained or made more secure by meritorious works, but is freely bestowed upon all who put their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary.
  • All who so trust the Savior are forgiven of their sins and born into the family of God by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit. (John 1:12; Acts 16:30-33; Rom. 10:9,10; Eph. 1:7, 2:8-9)

THE CHRISTIAN WALK

  • We believe that we are called with a holy calling, to walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, and so to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit that we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. But the flesh is never eradicated in this life and the individual chooses to keep the flesh in subjection to Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit or it will surely manifest its presence in our lives to the dishonor of our Lord. (Rom. 6:11-13; 8:2, 4, 12, 13; Gal. 5:16-23; Eph. 4:22-24; Col. 2:1-10; 1 Pet. 1:14-16; 1 John 1:4-7: 3:5-9)

THE GREAT COMMISSION

  • Until the return of Christ, it is the Christian's duty and privilege to seek the fulfillment of Christ's Great Commission and to minister in His name to a needy world.
  • We are to be instruments of Jesus Christ as the Holy Spirit ministers redemption and reconciliation in the world. (Matthew 25:31-46; 28:18-20)

THE GOSPEL CHURCH

  • We believe that a visible church of Christ is a congregation of baptized believers associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel.
  • We observe the ordinances of Christ, are governed by His word and exercise our gifts. (Acts 2:41-42)

BAPTISM AND THE LORD'S SUPPER

  • We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion in water of a believer. (Acts 2:41)
  • The Lord's Supper is the commemoration of the death of the Lord Jesus, preceded by solemn self-examination. (1 Corinthians 11: 23-31)

THE RESURRECTION

  • We believe that the Scriptures clearly teach that Jesus rose from the dead.
  • He now exists in His glorified body at God's right hand.
  • There will be a resurrection of the righteous and the wicked.
  • The bodies of the righteous will conform to the glorious spiritual body of Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
