First Chinese Presbyterian Church 100th Anniversary! PCUSA

MISSION STATEMENT

We, as members of the First Chinese Presbyterian Church, the people of God, strive to nurture our spirituality, serve God faithfully, spread the Gospel and service the community that God's great love may be manifested.

Our Belief

We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth. We believe in Jesus Christ, the only Son of God. Jesus was crucified, suffering the depths of human pain and giving his life for the sins of the world. Jesus rose from the dead, breaking the power of sin and evil, delivering us from death to life eternal. We believe in the Holy Spirit. The Spirit justifies us by grace through faith, sets us free to accept ourselves and to love God and neighbor, and binds us together with all believers in the one body of Christ, the Church.
