Vision Statement:

Be the hands of God in all we do, the voice of God in all we say, and the heart of God to those we serve.

Mission Statement:

Welcoming all to praise and worship Jesus Christ. We strive for spiritual growth through learning and understanding God’s Word. We value the importance of involvement by being a beacon of faith and compassion in the community.

Discipleship Process:

The Discipleship Process of Penningtonville Church involves inviting people to Come & Learn about who God is and who we are in relationship to God in Worship. The next step in the Discipleship Process is becoming a part of one of the Community Formation Groups, where individuals are connected to a group who are gathered to Share & Grow in their faith journey. We continue to develop as disciples as we seek ways of becoming involved in Mission & Outreach Opportunities. Mission & Outreach Opportunities provide us with ways to Go & Serve in a variety of different places using a variety of different gifts. This Discipleship Process never ends, but rather continues to evolve as we as disciples continue to Come & Learn in Worship; as we continue to Share & Grow in Community Formation Groups; and as we continue to Go & Serve through Mission & Outreach Opportunities.

The PPC Logo

Two symbols more than any others tell the story of the Christian faith. The first is the symbol of the cross. The cross in the PPC logo is formed by the two “P’s”. “For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (I Corinthians 1:18). The cross displays God’s love for us, that God would make a way for us to come into a right relationship with him. The cross displays God’s power, that through the cross God brings hope into a world of despair. The second is the symbol of the empty tomb. The empty tomb in the PPC logo is displayed in the sideways “C”. “They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus” (Luke 24:3). The empty tomb displays that Jesus’ death was not in vain, but instead that death does not have the final say for our lives. Just as Jesus was resurrected to new and eternal life with God the Father, so too can we receive the promise of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. The tomb could not contain Jesus – his earthly death was not the end, but instead a new beginning, a new promise of eternal life for all who believe in him.
