Our Core Values
Teaching the Bible and the message of Jesus Christ to all ages with an emphasis on younger generations.
Worship in the tradition of the Presbyterian Church, including a powerful and stimulating presence in the pulpit and an emphasis on excellence in music.
Giving of ourselves and our resources through local and global mission work along with being responsible stewards of our time and talents.
Discipleship within our congregation and beyond by spreading and experiencing the love of Christ through our example and commitment.
Congregational support and family of fellowship through pastoral care and sharing life as a community of believers.
Providing staff and facilities that are sufficient to support the mission and vision of our church.
Affirmation of Faith
Each Sunday we affirm our faith together through reciting one of our creeds. It will be printed in the bulletin.
The celebration of the Sacrament is open to the whole believing community. The invitation is extended to all who have been baptized or who come in faith, repentance, and love. Baptized children who have been instructed in the significance of the invitation to the Table and their response are also invited to receive the Lord’s Supper.
The Lord’s Supper is served at least once a month.
As there is one body, there is one Baptism. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) recognizes all Baptisms with water administered by other Christian churches. At Shelby Presbyterian, you may see young children or adults receiving Baptism by sprinkling from the Baptismal font.
