Our Mission

and Vision

Bible Presbyterian Church exists to help people

Reach up to God in gospel-focused commitment

Reach in toward each other in gospel-transforming community

Reach out to our neighbors in gospel-motivated compassion.

Our mission is to make fully devoted followers of Christ.

But what does that look like? To illustrate this idea we use the  diagram you see here. We believe that the life of a fully devoted follower of Christ increasingly reaches up to God in committed  worship, reaches in toward other believers in deeper community, and reaches out toward those who need Jesus' grace in greater compassion.  Reaching up, reaching in, and reaching out - that's what we're about.  And all three are fueled by the grace of Jesus we find in his gospel and our new identity in him.   

Reaching Up

A growing commitment in corporate worship, personal spiritual growth,

and generosity in giving and serving

Corporate worship

Gathering as God's redeemed people each Sunday to remember Jesus' resurrection from the dead strengthens our faith as we pray, sing, learn, and experience the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper together.  The Sabbath is a gift from God to be treasured and enjoyed.


Spiritual growth

Though we nurture our relationship with the Lord best through deep involvement in the local church, the Bible also calls us to make personal spiritual growth a priority.  This involves things like family worship in the home, personal Bible study, prayer, evangelism, and learning through biblically-sound resources.


Generosity in giving and serving

We serve a generous God.  In fact, we can't out-give him.  As his redeemed people, he calls us to share the resources of time, money, and talents with which he's blessed us to build up his church, care for others, and play a role in extending the fame and glory of Jesus.  Christian generosity isn't a "have to," it's a "get to."  


Reaching In

A growing commitment to nurture honest, trusting, and accountable discipleship relationships

Become a Member

Belonging to a local church is not like belonging to a club - it's much better.  Taking the step of membership tells our congregation, "I'm not just a spectator.  I'm a committed Christian who values contributing, accountability, and the blessings of being spiritually cared for by this church's elders and deacons."

Connect and Grow Together

Though each Christian has a personal relationship with God, that relationship is not private. God never intended for Christians to do life alone. We were made for relationship with God and with each other. A fully devoted follower of Christ is one who shares their life with other believers especially in discipleship relationships.

A Life of One-Anothering

There are over fifty "one another" commandments in the New Testament. Greet one another. Encourage one another. Love one another, etc.  The only way we can obey these commands is by intentionally connecting on regular, honest, and inter-dependent basis with other Christians in the local church.

Reaching Out

A growing commitment to use our spiritual gifts to reach out with the compassion of Christ toward those in our community who haven't yet discovered the joy of following Jesus

Personal evangelism

The Great Commission in Matthew 28:18-20 calls all Christians to "go" into our world, helping others know about their need for Jesus' forgiveness and his grace available through the gospel.

Compassion to the broken and hurting

Just as God extends grace and compassion to us in our brokenness, so he calls us to reach out with hope to those in our community who are hurting and looking for direction and a new start.  By providing solution-based, Christ-centered support groups and mentoring relationships God can bring gospel hope to many.

Outreach to our local youth and schools

Our congregation has a special heart to reach out to the many children and teens in our community and play a role of support and encouragement to the staff of our local schools.  Our goals are both to "show" the heart of Jesus and "tell" the saving message of Jesus to those who have never heard.
