Our Beliefs

FPC LogoLettersLeft-Color-crop“Fellowship” is more than a word in a name. It is a primary activity of this faith community that cares, is spiritually connected, and that joins together in the common goal of living the Good News of Christ’s love and compassion in today’s world.

Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.

God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time.

Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.

We believe in the Sacraments of Baptism and Communion (The Lord’s Supper) as instituted by God and commended by Christ. Sacraments are signs of the real presence and power of Christ in the Church – symbols of God’s action. Through Sacraments, God seals believers in redemption, renews their identity as the people of God, and marks them for service.
