Purpose
The primary purpose of The Upper Ohio Valley Presbytery is to serve as a resource body, designed to equip, challenge, and encourage the churches within its jurisdiction to carry out their call to prepare the saints to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others through worship, discipleship, fellowship, ministry and mission.


Mission Statement

We are a diverse people - urban and rural, poor and rich, people of steel, coal, factory and farm, heirs of various ethnic and Appalachian cultures.  We live with social, theological, political and economic tension but we are made one in Christ.

We are Christians in the Reformed Tradition, called to be in covenant relationship with God and with one another.  We will encourage one another, support one another, strengthen one another and do ministry together in service to God to the glory of Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE

We believe God loves us, frees us, and offers us wholeness through the grace of Jesus Christ.  We believe Jesus Christ is God with us and has authority over us.  We believe the Holy Spirit empowers us to accept and use God's gifts.  We believe the Old and New Testaments are the inspired written Word of God that reveals God to us and instructs us in faithful living.  We believe the church is the body of Christ calling us into family relationship to minister globally, regionally and locally.

WE RESPOND

We tell and celebrate the Good News of Jesus Christ in Presbytery, in churches and in communities through word and deed.  We work together as congregations to carry out the mission of the churches and the Presbytery; to engage in evangelism, education and service.  We strive to promote justice and righteousness.  We encourage, support and challenge congregations as they minister.  We nurture the growth and health of congregations, church professionals and their families.  We interpret the work of the Presbytery, Synod and General Assembly to the sessions and congregations of our presbytery; and we represent the concerns of our members to Synod and General Assembly.  We uphold and interpret the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA) within the Reformed Tradition.
