Mission Statement

College Avenue Presbyterian Church seeks to be a welcoming Christian community of faith, embracing the grace of God, the compassion of Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit.

Mission in Action
By our faith and through our actions, we dedicate ourselves to:
  • worshipping together with joy and humility in the Presbyterian Reformed tradition as a member of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
  • accepting, nurturing, and celebrating the gifts of each person
  • serving the sick, the needy, and the less fortunate as we work to build a world that embodies God’s kindness and compassion
  • exploring, with open hearts and minds, the meaning of our individual and our shared faith for the present and for the future
  • participating near and far in the hope and in the struggle for a just, peaceable, and environmentally sustainable world

We enter College Avenue to worship and, with God’s grace, we depart to serve through community, mission, education, and justice.
