Our Core Values
As a Worshipping Community who Follows Jesus we:
Welcome Everyone as Family
As God has welcomed us into His family through Jesus Christ we love people where they are on their spiritual journey. We believe that as a part of God's family we are an extension of His love and are here to honor His commandment to love others.
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-39)
Trust and Live Out God's Word
The Bible is the light on our path and the guide for knowing and trusting God. We are confident that God's word is provided by the Holy Spirit and is the authority for our lives. We strive to lead a life that reflect God will by studying, experiencing and teaching the Word.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Share Our Journey Together
God created us for relationship with Him and with one another. Like Jesus we are called us to rejoice in each other’s joys and help carry each other's burdens. As a community we assemble to help, pray and be present in each other’s daily lives.
“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:35)
Uniquely Shaped and Unleashed to Serve
By the Holy Spirit we are uniquely gifted with passions and talents to engage with God on His mission both within and outside of the church. We are invited to see our daily lives as the front lines of ministry with desire to see fruit from living as whole-life disciples of Jesus.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Ephesians 2:10)
Embrace God's Future While Honoring Our Past
Throughout Dardenne Presbyterian Church’s rich history we have embraced the mission of Jesus Christ to make disciples and serve this community. We believe that God has exciting adventures for us ahead and that the best days of our church are still to come.
Because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,[and] being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:5-6)
