Thank you so much for your interest in Edgington Evangelical Presbyterian Church. Since September 1837, our congregation has endeavored to be a worshiping and missions-minded body of believers with a steadfast witness to historic Christian faith in the Reformed tradition. In the words of our Confession of Faith, we believe that our highest purpose is to "glorify God and to enjoy to Him forever." In light of this, there are several very central realities that make up the identity of our beloved church.
 
Committed to the Word of God :: First, we hold the Bible, God's inerrant and infallible Word, as the final authority for all things of faith and life. As God's living revelation of Himself (2 Tim 3:16), the Holy Spirit inspired Scriptures are the means by which we come to know God through His Son Jesus Christ.
 
Committed to the Centrality of Christ :: Second, we believe that in all things Jesus Christ is central and "preeminent" (Col 1:18). As the Head of the Church, our great desire is to know, serve, love and worship Christ as our Lord, Savior, Treasure and Friend. We want to make much of Jesus in our community, and demonstrate His matchless worth through the ministry of His grace.
 
Committed to the Reformed Faith :: Third, we are committed to the historic Reformed tradition of the Christian faith, as set forth in the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms (Larger and Shorter). This 17th century expression of the Protestant Faith, is rooted and grounded in the principles of the Reformation. As such, we exult in the wonderful sovereignty of God and the truth that "salvation belongs to the Lord" (Jonah 2:9).
 
Committed to the Great Commission :: Fourth, we take seriously Jesus' command to "make disciples" (Matthew 28:19). Because we understand that discipleship takes place in the home, in the community and local Church, and in the nations abroad; our Missions Committee supports a number of local, national and international ministries. From church planting in the Middle East and France, African medical missions, and local rescue, at-risk, and youth programs, we strive to make a difference in Jesus' name in the hopes that many will embrace the Gospel.
 
Committed to Christian Fellowship :: Fifth, we enjoy and promote the importance of fellowship among the people of God. As a church, we seek to foster mutual concern and love in the life of the congregation. As we meet and grow together, our hope is that holy and compassionate relationships are nurtured. We love to speak of the 'Church Family' because Jesus said, "by this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another" (John 13:15).
