Our Mission Statement succinctly defines the fundamental purpose of our church, describing why we exist and what we do to achieve our Vision.
Siler Presbyterian Church
glorifies God by
… inviting all into a relationship with Jesus Christ,
… growing in faith, and
… serving Christ in the crossroads.
Our Vision Statement
outlines what we want our church to be in the future, and what we want that future to look like. From this we developed our Strategic Plan,
which is a combination of the ends (goals) for which our church is striving, and the means (policies, ways) by which we seek to get there. Our Strategic Plan is our roadmap to ensure we are going in the right direction, which is towards this end vision.
After more than a century of ministry and mission, Siler Presbyterian Church has come to a crossroads. Throughout our history God has blessed this congregation with wonderful men and women who have left the imprint of Christ on this church and community. It is in honor of this admirable history and those faithful believers that we recommit ourselves to the future by finding and following the direction God has laid out for our church. Siler will continue to be more than a landmark on the corner. We will be a center of faith and activity in this community. Our hope is that everyone in western Union County will know who and where we are as well as what we do and believe. With this in mind we recommit ourselves to the Trinitarian God and His Church as we serve Him in this place envisioning the future for Siler.
