St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church Mission Statement


Our Mission

To know God and to make God known through lives transformed by Christ


Our Vision

We are on an evangelistic, mission-oriented journey with emphasis on bringing Jesus Christ to the world.  Worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry development, and evangelism enable us.  Three strategic elements define our moving forward:

  • Reaching Outward — becoming a missional church for whom mission is the organizing principle of all we do;
  • Looking Upward — strengthening our relationship with God through inspired worship, energizing prayer, and increasing reliance on the Holy Spirit; and
  • Maturing Inward — allowing our lives to be transformed by studying God’s Word, developing greater intimacy with Christ and one another, and living the Christian life.

 

TENETS OF FAITH

  • Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him.(John 14:6)
  • The Bible is the inspired Word of God. It is our ultimate guide in the Christian life. (II Timothy 3:16-17)

  • The holy life of Christ is lived out in the faithful covenant of marriage between a man and a woman or through chastity in singleness. (Genesis 2:20b-25)
