As a Christ-centered community of faith, we are called by
Christ to proclaim the Gospel and to build a future wherein:
Hope abounds and love is alive,
Life finds meaning and lessons are learned,
Friendship, marriages and families are nurtured,
The hurt find healing and the restless find peace,
The soul finds its worth in God and Jesus Christ is Lord.
Through the love of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit,
We at First Presbyterian Church of Howell come together
to worship and glorify God, reaching out to share in the
knowledge and joy of God’s love,
Therefore we commit to fulfill God’s purpose:
To love God with all our heart, all our soul, all our mind
and all our strength,
To live side-by-side in relationships filled with love and respect,
To reach out in faith to our local and global communities,
To discern God’s will through prayer, the study of Scripture
and devoted worship,
To nurture children, youth and adults in a lifelong process
of spiritual growth through Christian education,
To provide a safe and holy place that reveals God’s presence in the community, and
To manage faithfully our God-given time, talent and resources.
As a Christ-centered congregation, we commit ourselves
wholeheartedly to this mission.
