Agency Details


The Church’s Mission: The Mission of EWPC is to serve the Lord Jesus Christ by sharing His love and His Good News as we serve our community.

The Church: At the core of Presbyterian belief is the sovereignty of God, the authority of the scripture, justification by grace through faith and the priesthood of all believers. We believe that God is the supreme authority throughout the universe. Our knowledge of God and God’s purpose for humanity comes from the Bible, particularly what is revealed in the New Testament and through the life of Jesus Christ. Our salvation (justification) through Jesus is God’s generous gift to us, and it is not the result of our own accomplishments. It is everyone’s job — ministers and lay people alike — to share this Good News with the whole world.
