What We Believe

"We seek to live God's love, welcome all people and joyfully serve God."
WGPC Mission Statement

Welcome to Webster Groves Presbyterian Church! We seek to live Christ's love, welcome all people and joyfully serve God. Which means we are an intergenerational congregation of people doing our best to love each other and our neighbors as Jesus Christ calls us to do. We work at this by creating worship that connects us to God and to each other. In addition, we emphasize service to others through strong mission outreach because we believe our neighbors extend from our community to the rest of the world.

We also live out our faith spiritually and humbly because we know we don't have all the answers. We find joyful freedom in asking questions and accepting we are not perfect! Grace, forgiveness, compassion, and joy abound at WGPC.

Worship with us, ask questions with us, listen with us for the Holy Spirit as we grow in faith and do our best to show God's unending love!
