Expanded explanation:


Hickory Withe Presbyterian Church is a Christ-centered, Bible-based historic church of believers: the definition of who we are and what we believe is found in the Bible's teaching about Christ and the history of redemption that leads to Him and proceeds from Him. This leads us to be committed to:
  • Preaching the transforming grace of Jesus Christ: reading and proclaiming the words and meaning of the Bible, especially the message of transformation by grace;
  • Teaching the transforming grace of Jesus Christ: instructing believers in what it means to be transformed by the gospel, and in how to live as a disciple of Christ;
  • And sharing the transforming grace of Jesus Christ: offering the hope of transformation through grace to all who would hear and receive the Truth.
Hickory Withe Presbyterian Church has been a community of faith with deep commitments to biblical truth in the local and worldwide communities since 1834.

The transforming grace of Jesus Christ has shaped us into a community-focused people. Because of Christ, we live in
spiritual community with God Himself, sharing in fellowship with the trinitarian God through worship, prayer, Word, and Sacrament. Because of Christ, we are redefined as a community of fellowship bound together in Him, made brothers and sisters instead of the strangers we once were, and serving one another in love and faithfulness. And because of Christ, we work to serve the community we live in by:
  • Offering biblical teaching in many settings, at different levels, and for all ages;
  • Engaging in Christ-centered worship that embraces the historic elements of Christian worship, the needs of the people today, and the power of the Gospel to transform through grace.
  • And providing assistance through acts of kindness and benevolence, demonstrating the love of Christ as the people of God.
