About Us

Our Vision

 

To welcome all no matter where they are on their spiritual journey. From those who have been churched all their lives to those who have never joined a church community but are intersted in exploring ther own spirituality or finding out more about Jesus Christ.

 

We are a congregation seeking to join together that we all may go deeper in the love of God for our own sake and for the sake of the world in which we live.

 

We are a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church USA and of Carlisle Presbytery.

Our Mission

 

 By the grace of God and in the power of the Holy Spirit we are called to:

 

Encourage and nurture each other into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ by stressing in our teaching and preaching that the Christian faith is first and foremost a life encompassing relationship with Christ as our Lord and Savior. As Disciples of Jesus, our goal is to make our own lives more Christ like in all that we do; seeking his presence and will in the practice of spiritual disciplines such as regular prayer, bible reading, meditation, fasting, simplicity, submission, solitude, service, etc.

 

Seek deeper relationship with one another through small group and intergenerational ministries and by adopting attitudes of servanthood and openess to the views and needs of others. Further, by use of our spiritual gifts we invite God to build a sense of community that goes beyond family ties so that all members may experience the unity of the body of Christ.

 

Deepen our relationship with those outside the church to whom we are called to witness by practicing need-based evangelism and by being receptive to opportunities to proclaim both in word and deed the truth, grace and mercy of God; whether it be in the local community or wherever God may call us to minister. 

 

 

 

 

Do not fear what the world fears, but in your heart set apart Christ as Lord.

Always be prepared to give an answer  (both in word and deed) to everyone who asks you

to give the reason for the hope that you have.

Always doing this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience,

so that those who would speak against the faith you profess 

would not be given a reason to do so. (1 Peter 3:14-17)
