Our Mission Statement


We believe that in the 125-year history of West End Presbyterian Church, God has charged our congregation to be inclusive, forward-thinking, generous of spirit, and supportive of the community. The purpose of West End Presbyterian Church is to share the message and promise of Jesus Christ with the people of the world and particularly the people of this neighborhood, and to serve as a place where all can praise God.

The mission of West End Presbyterian Church is fueled by the need to establish Christ’s presence on earth. Through witness and service, we endeavor to accomplish our mission through the following activities:

  • Weekly worship in English, Spanish, and Eritrean
  • Music by choirs, and community concerts by guest artists
  • Bible study and prayer groups in English, Spanish, and Eritrean
  • Educational, health, and family-oriented programs both inside and outside the church walls for the benefit of both the church and the community
  • Nurture and development of children and young people through the creation of mentoring and educational activities
  • Provision of group and recreational activities for young people and the elderly
  • Sharing of God’s space with a variety of faith and community organizations
  • Partnership with others in activities to foster and support unity, social justice, community development, improvement, and cooperation in our neighborhood
  • Use of physical, human, and financial resources as the base of support for the wider mission of the church in this community and in the entire world and toward the creation of spiritual friendship
