At Bedford Presbyterian Church, we believe that...

God is personal and loving

  • We seek to know and love God: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • We make time for reflection and go to God in prayer
  • We seek to learn and understand more about God's instruction and discern God's guidance through worship, Bible study and Christian education
  • We support and encourage each other, no matter where we are on our faith journey

Jesus is Savior and Lord

  • We find our hope and salvation through Jesus Christ
  • We acknowledge that we are saved by God's grace, not by our works. Our works are a response to God's grace, not a means by which to earn it
  • We embrace the life and teachings of Jesus and strive to live by His example

Worship is the center of our life together

  • We seek to experience God's presence and Word in worship
  • We practice intergenerational worship to include and inspire all ages
  • We are refreshed by worship, which prepares our hearts and minds for the week to come

The church is the Body of Christ on earth

  • We are called to be a faithful, loving community
  • We actively encourage and invite others to find a faith home at BPC
  • We gratefully respond to the distinctive gifts of time, talent and treasure that God has given each one of us by offering a portion of these gifts in service as Christian disciples
  • We recognize the worth of every individual, affirming that everyone has something to offer and we try to help all find ways to share
  • We are proud of our Presbyterian heritage and support the work of the Presbyterian Church (USA)

We love our neighbors as ourselves

  • We follow Jesus by practicing compassion, generosity and forgiveness
  • We endeavor to do God's work in the world
  • We reach out in love to one another and the broader community, making a difference in people's lives by sharing, caring and being active in the mission field
