FUPC Core Values

Here are the core values of First United Presbyterian Church:

    • Intentional Unity: Seeking common ground to bridge divides in church, community, and culture.
      Ephesians 4:3. Make every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
    • Inspiring Worship: Prayerfully praising God together and being touched and changed by the Spirit.
      Psalm 105:1-3.  O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name, make known his deeds among the peoples.  Sing to him, sing praises to him; tell of all his wonderful works.  Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
    • Spiritual Growth: Encouraging lifelong growth by prayerfully studying scripture, the Christian faith, and the world around us.
      Colossians 2:6-7. As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
    • Loving Relationships: Nurturing connections and deepening friendships in a joyful environment. 
      1 John 4:11. Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another.
    • Faithful Service: Working together to reflect and demonstrate God’s love to all people.
      I John 3:18.  Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.
    • Generous Stewardship: Sharing our gifts, caring for the earth and community, and cultivating our resources for God’s purposes.
      II Corinthians 9:8. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.
    • Welcoming Community: Striving to be an inviting, caring, and supportive Christian family.
      I Thessalonians 2:8. So deeply do we care for you that we are determined to share with you not only the gospel of God but also ourselves, because you have become dear to us.
