The life of the Church reflects movement both inward and outward – being gathered as the community of faith, and being sent out into the world.
The Mission of Faith/Fe Presbyterian Church is to help people of all racial/ethnic backgrounds to respond to God’s love and God’s call to be faithful disciples of Jesus Christ by growing in commitment to Christ through study, worship, fellowship and
stewardship reaching out in service and witness to invite others to accept Christ.
WHAT Does "PRESBYTERIANS" Mean?
“Presbyterian” describes the way the church is governed. Responsibility for oversight in the Presbyterian tradition rests on elected bodies at congregation, regional and national levels. The ruling council in each congregation is called the Session, a body made up of women and men known as “elders,” who have been “set apart” by election and ordination as the spiritual leaders of the church with the Pastor. “Elder” is the translation of a New Testament Greek word presbuteros, from which we get the word “Presbyterian.”
WHAT DO PRESBYTERIANS BELIEVE?
In life and in death we belong to God. Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit we trust in one triune God,
the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.
