Our Vision & Mission Statements

Our Vision Statement

We are a fellowship of believers seeking to follow and spread the teachings of Jesus Christ in our personal lives, our community and beyond, through worship, mission and the proclamation of the Gospel. Since 1728, we have been a faith community, guided by the Holy Spirit, evolving in the eyes of God. The overwhelming love of God, our heritage and our beliefs compel us to serve, with joy and humility, through our individual lives and congregational ministries and programs.

Our Mission Statement

As a community rooted in grace, our mission is to:

    • Invite people into a relationship with God
    • Grow together as devoted followers of Christ, and
    • Serve others through the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

INVITE

We invite you to have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We want the Presbyterian Church in Westfield to be a safe community in which to search to know God and grow on your spiritual journey. We believe that a relationship with God changes lives. God has the power to forgive, mend relationships, bring inner peace, lead us in a calling (work that serves God and neighbor), restore joy to our lives, and secure our future. Experience your heart being drawn toward God as we gather to worship. But don’t stop there…

GROW

Find a place in the church where you can grow in faith and love. The Presbyterian Church in Westfield is a large church composed of many small groups and mid-sized fellowship groups where close bonds are developed and spiritual growth occurs. We encourage everyone who joins our church to also join a small group where you can question, study, learn, serve, receive support from and care for others. But don’t stop there…

SERVE

The Presbyterian Church in Westfield does not exist for the sake of its members, but for the sake of the world God loves in Jesus Christ. Being part of the Presbyterian Church in Westfield means being part of a mission that impacts lives through concrete service and sharing the gospel. God wants everyone to live in a happy and holy society at peace with God and others. Experience the joy that comes when you discover God using you to reach out with the love of Christ to others facing life’s struggles. Discern your unique gifts for ministry. Explore how your work can be an avenue of service to God and others.
