About Our Church
BALMORAL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH'S MISSION STATEMENT
We are an open community who believes God is love and who lives our belief through praise and service.

A VISION of BALMORAL PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
Balmoral PC people are spirit-driven. Its wind fills our sails and we go where God leads us, with servant leadership as a guiding principle. We encourage mutual love and support, and we welcome without hesitation — all orientations, races, denominations, points of view. Our members share their talents with each other and in the wider community. We focus on community and cross-border outreach. Our mission is to develop our spiritual growth so that we may better serve others, reflecting the presence of Christ in our lives. We listen to the spirit, the community, and each other. We live out this vision with our support of hunger and homeless programs; our commitment to racial reconciliation; sharing much of our building with community organizations; hosting a learning center for children with exceptional needs; employing music and art as forms of worship; and empowering and encouraging our members in their own volunteer interests.
