The Presbytery of Northumberland
Mission Statement

We, as the Presbytery of Northumberland, a part of The Presbyterian Church (USA),
exist to give encouragement, leadership, administrative support, and
financial management for the following mission:

To proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord and that we are both created
and called to be the Body of Christ in suffering and in service to all
whom God calls us to help and aid 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 distinctly Christian ministry characterized by
mercy and grace;

To remain open in all ways to God’s call to serve in patterns familiar and new;

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, calls all
churches and persons to repentance, under the assurance of God’s
forgiveness, and to the promises of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
