The Loch Raven Presbyterian Church exists to glorify God and to make known His eternal and unchanging purpose, fulfilled through a living relationship with Jesus Christ. In working towards “Keeping Christ Pre-eminent in All Things”, we desire to conduct everything we do in a spirit of God’s love.
Loch Raven Presbyterian Church is a body of believers seeking to enact Christ’s will for us personally and as a body. We seek unity in peace and love, worship in spirit and truth, and hold the Holy Bible as our basis for living our lives, teaching and preaching. We focus on people, seeking to point people to a personal faith in Christ and equipping believers to seek a closer relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. Our purpose is to care and pray for people in a spirit of love as Christ loved the Church. By the grace of God, we endeavor to do this in the following six ways:
To worship our Triune God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit with praise, prayer celebration of the sacraments, and the proclamation of God’s inerrant word.
To proclaim the message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
To teach, equip, and encourage those in the Body of Christ to be growing, obedient, faithful, followers of Jesus Christ. To equip our people to be ready to explain the hope that is within them, concerning their assurance of salvation.
To exhort believers to meet together, encouraging one another in Christ, promoting Godly love and good works, and ministering to each other.
To be a church body that genuinely cares for and serves people and has a heart for missions – locally, nationally, & globally.
To be a church body that teaches, encourages, and practices both corporate and individual prayer.
