What We Believe
At First Presbyterian Church, worship lies at the heart of everything we do.
As God's people in First Presbyterian Church of Clarks Summit, we enter the next century with faithfulness and hope. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we intend to respond to Christ's call.
We intend to worship the Triune God
by proclaiming God's Word,
offering our gifts, prayers and music
and celebrating the sacraments.
We intend to equip God's people for ministry in the world by deepening our spiritual commitments,
studying the Scriptures
and living out God's purposes in our everyday lives.
We intend to serve God
by identifying needs in our world and congregation
and responding to those needs
in ways that are faithful to the Gospel.
To these ends,
we commit our time, talents, resources and love.
If the weekly worship services lie at the heart of our congregation's life, then the weekly sermons of our ministers lie at the heart of our worship services. In the sermon, we listen for God to speak each week through the human voice of our preacher. To read some examples of Reverend Carter's sermons, please see our Sermons page.
To learn more about who we are and what we believe as a church, we invite you to read this Welcome from Reverend Bill Carter.
