What Do We Believe?

What makes LHPC special and unique? What is our Mission and Vision?

Our Mission

"Go...and Make Disciples."
(Matthew 28:18-20)

Disciple-making happens both inside and outside the church. From within, we grow in both faith and action, by living out our commitment to Christ.  We reach outside the church to those who may not yet know Christ, those who may not yet have a faith community, or to those perhaps who simply need tending.

Our Vision Statement highlights this:

Our Vision

“Serving God Together by
      Reaching Out, Loving, Caring and
           Inspiring Spiritual and Personal Growth”

We hope you will sense our Mission and catch our Vision!

“Presbyterian” is a big word that means LHPC is governed by a group of elected elders who, along with the pastor, lead the congregation.

Presbyterians believe:

  • God is in charge
  • Jesus is our Lord and Savior
  • We are saved by God’s grace
  • The Bible is central to faith
  • We reach out to others who need God and who need help
  • Two sacraments:  Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
  • The Holy Spirit continues to inspire us
  • We are connected to other churches
