Our Beliefs

Value Statement

First Presbyterian Church Milton is: Christ-centered, Bible-based, Disciple-making, Outreach-oriented.

Christ-centered: Jesus Christ is our life example, and His work is our life’s work.  

  • Colossians 1:18 And He is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the first born from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy.

Bible-based: Our teaching and our church’s mission comes from the Bible, God’s inspired word to us. 

  • 2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Disciple-making: A disciple is a learner who practices spiritual disciplines including prayer, Bible reading, fellowship and giving. They discover and use their spiritual gifts in the church and the world.

  • Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations. 
  • Ephesians 4: 11-12 It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up. 

Outreach-oriented: It is our purpose to share Jesus Christ with those who do not yet know him and bring them into the family of God.

  • Acts 2:46-47 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
