The Core Values of Fourth Presbyterian Church

Fourth Presbyterian Church is committed to glorifying God by making disciples of Jesus Christ through Christ-centered worship, gospel-shaped community, kingdom-advancing multiplication, and neighbor-loving service.

Christ-Centered Worship

Our primary commitment is to worship the Triune God.

  • Proclaiming the gospel through the whole counsel of God’s Word on Sunday morning and evening
  • Celebrating the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper as powerful signs and seals which impress upon us the grace of the gospel
  • Delighting in His redemptive works, singing His praises, and giving for His glory

Gospel-Shaped Community

Our community life is shaped by the gospel of grace.

  • Loving, serving, praying and promoting the peace and purity of the church together
  • Bearing one another’s burdens, rejoicing in one another’s joys, and celebrating life in Christ together
  • Growing in grace and maturing in Christ as we teach, learn, and apply the Scriptures

Kingdom-Advancing Multiplication

Our mission is to make disciples of all nations.

  • Sharing the good news of the gospel and calling all to believe in and follow Jesus Christ
  • Welcoming all who want to know more about the Christian faith
  • Raising up and sending out missionaries to the ends of the earth

Neighbor-Loving Service

Our call is to serve our neighbors in loving witness to Jesus Christ

  • Demonstrating compassion and mercy to all in need
  • Building relationships with our neighbors and being involved in our communities
  • Partnering with other organizations that serve the needs of the poor and broken
