A Vision for the First Presbyterian Church of East Aurora

Faithful Followers of Jesus Christ

In response to God’s call, we follow Jesus Christ faithfully with our whole lives and invite others to join us in growing in the will of God. We commit ourselves to the ways and means of grace, including prayer, meditating on God’s Word, worship, fellowship, mission, service, and the sacraments of communion and baptism. Our desire is to grow a community of faith, empowered by the Holy Spirit, in which we love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves.

The Vibrant Worship of God

We strive to demonstrate our love for God by coming together in joyful worship and by seeking God’s will in the prayerful study of God’s Word, the Holy Bible. Because a healthy church needs everyone’s participation to thrive, we recognize our responsibility to attend service as we are able and to bring the children in our lives to church, as well as to invite friends and neighbors who might be looking for a church home.

Standing as a Beacon of Openness and Tolerance

We believe that every person is a child of God and we actively strive to create an atmosphere where all feel welcome and safe regardless of age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or ability. We feel strongly that diversity is a blessing from God and should be celebrated and embraced.

Growing as a Loving Family of God’s Children

We want to create a close-knit church community where everyone knows your name, we are eager to help each other, and enjoy having fun together.  Because each person has a role to play and a talent to offer, everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in the life of the Church.

Enthusiastically Serving God in the Community and the World

We have been blessed by God and endeavor to do God’s will by helping all of God’s children both close to home and far away. We recognize that there are endless ways to contribute to God’s work and seek to provide opportunities for all who are willing.
