Mission & Vision

Vision

“So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied” (Acts 9:31). Therefore,

 

College Hill Presbyterian Church will be a church that multiplies Christians and churches as it walks in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit.

 

Mission

And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age’” (Matthew 28:18-20). Therefore,

 

College Hill Presbyterian Church exists to glorify God by making, maturing, and mobilizing disciples of Jesus Christ our Lord who advance the Great Commission in our community, at the University, and around the world.

 

Means and Method

We believe that “The outward and ordinary means whereby Christ communicates to us the benefits of redemption are his ordinances, especially the Word, sacraments, and prayer, all which are made effectual to the elect for salvation” (Westminster Shorter Catechism A. 88, cf. Acts 2:42). We further believe that as we gather around these means of grace (primarily in corporate worship, but also less formally on Wednesday nights, during Sunday school, and in community groups), Christ grows us as Christians so that we might effectively go to love and serve those with whom we live, work, worship, and play.

 

In short, the means of realizing our vision and mission are God’s means of grace, and the method is to Gather, Grow, Go.
