Vision Task Force Report
In 2017, the Session of High Bridge Presbyterian Church approved a brief mission statement.
Raised to new life in Christ Jesus our Lord, we desire to:
Worship God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit;
Love the Lord Our God with our whole heart, mind, and soul;
Love our neighbors in Southern Rockbridge County, region, and world;
Promote an environment of spiritual growth and discipleship by heading the words of the Apostle Paul when he writes: “…God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love—like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love.” (Ephesians 4:15-16, The Message)
At their February 2022 meeting, the Session adopted this Vision Statement as an extension of the Mission Statement, a way to live out that mission at this moment in the church’s life.
We believe that High Bridge Presbyterian Church is currently being called by God to continue sharing our Spirit-given gifts of hospitality, fellowship, and care for children and families and to grow in our intentional witness and sense of communal mission to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
