In the gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells his followers what they are supposed to do after he is no longer physically with them. This is known as the Great Commission. In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus comes to his disciples and says, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Every church in the world has the same mission - to fulfill the Great Commission given to us by Jesus. However, God has given every church its own unique context, and God calls each church to fulfill the Great Commission in different ways in light of the church's context. At Southminster Presbyterian Church, we share many things in common with other churches such as the importance of teaching others what Jesus taught us, gathering together to worship God through prayer, singing, reading Scripture, and growing as a disciple of Jesus.
Through the unique family that God has gathered at Southminster, we also have qualities that make us different from most other churches. We understand these difference to be our core values that define us as a church. Below you'll find the 5 core values that reflect how God has called our church to fulfill the mission that He has given us.
