Our Mission Statement
We, as the Presbytery of Northumberland, a part of The Presbyterian Church (USA), exist in order to give encouragement, leadership, administrative support, and financial management for the following mission:
To proclaim that Christ is Lord and that we are both created and called to be one body of Christ in suffering and in service to all whom God calls us to serve individually and corporately;
To create within this part of the Body of Christ a sense of vision and motivation which enhances our growth and develops our spiritual gifts in a distinctively Christian ministry characterized by mercy and grace;
To remain open always and in all ways to God’s call to serve in patterns familiar and unique;
To show God’s reconciling love in justice which includes caring for all humanity as we struggle with both personal and social captivities;
To honor the Creator by calling the world through our example and our deeds to a more perfect trusteeship of God’s creation.
To this end the Presbytery, in our unity and in our diversity, must call all churches and persons to repentance, under the assurance of forgiveness, and to the promises of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
