What We Believe

Our Mission

“Rooted in Scripture, Eastminster Presbyterian Church exists to connect people with Jesus, build Christ-centered relationships, spread the gospel of hope, and share God’s love with others wherever we go.”

Core Values

Our biblically-based Core Values represent who we are as a church, address our actions as a church, identify the things to which we devote ourselves, illuminate our principles and shape our ministry and culture. These Core Values are the foundation of our mission, our church family and pastoral leadership, as well as a welcoming invitation to our community.
