Manor Values

We are so glad that you are interested in learning more about what God is doing at  Manor Presbyterian Church. Together we want to be the kind of church described in the Bible—learning together from scripture, serving one another, developing meaningful relationships, reaching out to others in our community with the love of Jesus Christ, and worshiping God because we understand how generous He has been to us. We are so eager to see all these values permeate everything we do that we use our name, MANOR, to keep them in mind.

Master the Word

If we want to be like Jesus Christ, then we need biblical, relevant teaching for that to happen. Our lives need to be characterized by the ongoing growth and maturity that comes from mastering, and being mastered by, the Word of God. Therefore, learning and applying the Bible is a central part of our worship celebrations, Sunday School classes and other meetings in the church.

Aspire to Serve

The church is called a Body where each member has a unique and special function. Each person has something important to offer. That is why we urge every member to learn what they do best and then develop that gift in the Body of Christ. When each member humbly serves others, our entire church family is blessed as we all work together.

Nurture One Another

The church is not simply a building. The church is all the people joined together by the love of Jesus. Because the church is a Body, each member needs to nurture every other member. Each of us has blind-spots, areas where we are slow to believe that God loves us and continues to work in and through our lives. So, we are committed to meeting together in small groups throughout the week where we encourage one another face to face to believe everything that God has done for us.

Offer the Gospel to Others

The Gospel is the Good News that God loves us so much that He became a man in the person of Jesus Christ. As both God and man, Jesus paid the price for our sins that we could not pay and lived the sinless life we cannot live. He gave us His righteousness and took our guilt, gifts that we do not deserve, and so we want to share that good news with others in our community and around the world.

Realign Our Priorities

Because God has given us so much, we want to be generous in the way we give ourselves back to Him. God is the North Star that determines how we spend our money, how we use our time, how we live our lives.
