What We Believe
Like every other church, St. Patrick has a set of convictions, emphases and partnerships that make it distinctive. In terms of partnerships, St. Patrick is a candidate church of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, a family of churches planting gospel-centered congregations around the globe. In terms of beliefs and teaching, we joyfully embrace historic Christian orthodoxy, which the vast majority of churches have affirmed throughout the centuries. In turn, this framework provides the foundation for our Core Values:
Gospel Transformation. The Holy Spirit uses the gospel–the good news that Jesus died and rose for sinners–to change people and places like nothing else can.
Gospel Community. Through trust in Jesus, God welcomes us into a family of imperfect people who live, love, laugh, cry and make much of Him together.
Gospel Presence. God has called and equipped us to share and live out our faith right where we are–in our neighborhoods and workplaces. The gospel isn’t merely about creating great churches, but great towns as well.
Gospel Ambition. Because the gospel creates followers of Jesus who are eager to help others follow him as well, we are committed to planting churches, both locally and around the world.
Gospel Passion. The goal of the gospel is that God would be worshiped, celebrated, and enjoyed by people like us, and as we trust and follow Jesus, the more we are moved to make him famous in every area of life.
