Cultivating Spirit-led collaborative ministries that embody God’s love in Jesus Christ.
As a Presbytery of the PC(USA), in faithful response to what God does, we are cultivating collaboration between congregations, ecclesiastical partners, community organizations, and global neighbors so that ministry will thrive in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Being Reformed by Love: We collaborate together to nurture worship, spirituality, and community that strengthens our connection with God and one another.
Loving Our Neighbors:
- Through inclusion – We collaborate together to change assumptions, engage all with compassion, unearth bias and uproot the prejudice, discrimination, oppression, racism, and violence that stems from it.
- Through justice – We collaborate together to dismantle unjust systems, practices, and structures and to build a more equitable and life-giving society.
Loving the World: We collaborate together to honor the interconnection of all life by fostering greater stewardship of the natural world towards sustainability for generations to come.
What we believe
Our faith can be summarized with these words from The Brief Statement of Faith:
In life and in death we belong to God. Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve. Book of Confessions
