Swarthmore Presbyterian Church 
Welcomes You

Welcome to SPC! We hope you will find friends among us to share your journey of faith.

We are a family of faith committed to preaching, teaching, and living the Word of God. We respond to the love and saving grace of Jesus Christ through love for and service to each other, our community, and a world in need. Acknowledging that our blessings are from God and meant to be shared, we seek to transcend ourselves and to embody our faith in the world, reaching out to those who need our help. To the best of our ability, but with Christ’s own humility, we strive to be the hands of God extended in love and acceptance.

Swarthmore Presbyterian Church seeks to be a diverse but united worshiping and learning community that plays a constructive role in society and the world at large. Rather than construct barriers to God’s grace, we invite all who trust in God through Jesus Christ and who seek the Spirit’s challenge, guidance, and comfort to join us for a committed journey of faith. All children of God are accepted.

Though one community, we are also unique persons, mutually interactive and individually reflective. Our members include those who are politically conservative and liberal, interested in national issues and world affairs. We have a deep and abiding love for each other. We strive to manifest inclusiveness as an open and socially concerned congregation.

Following our denomination’s Brief Statement of Faith, we call all women and all men to ministries of the church. We cherish our traditional belief in God’s sole lordship of the conscience. In regard to questions presently before the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) regarding ordination, we welcome to our community and to positions of leadership both heterosexual and homosexual Christians called by God to serve as members of the body of Christ.
