Ordinary & Christ-centered
Providence Presbyterian Church is a Reformed congregation established to know Christ and to make Him known, for the glory of God and the joy of humanity
Ordinary, Christ-centered Ministry
The book of Hebrews tells us that God has revealed himself through his Son, who is “the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature.” At Providence Presbyterian Church, we believe that this revelation of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, is the only hope for lost and broken people. Therefore, we strive to make the Jesus the center of all our ministry.
You may wonder what being Christ-centered means and what it looks like. At Providence, we strive to be intentional about doing ministry based on the Biblical answer to such questions. We are committed to knowing Christ and making Christ known in the ways that Christ himself taught us in His Word.
According to the Bible, Jesus is primarily made known through the preaching of the Gospel and the sacraments of the church. These ordinary means are unimpressive in appearance but we trust that God’s foolishness is greater than the wisdom of men.
Therefore, Providence Church is committed to making Christ known to Temecula, Murrieta, Menifee and the surrounding communities through preaching the truth of God’s story, celebrating the goodness of community and participating in the beauty of liturgy.
Ordinary Church Life
The unflashy and approach to ministry results in a congregational life that is just as ordinary and simple. At Providence you can expect to discover:
A liturgical, formative and multi-generational style of Lord’s Day worship rooted in the ordinary means of grace.
Lifelong, patient, cradle to the grave discipleship in a community led and exemplified by our Minister, elders and deacons.
Engagement in a mission bigger than ourselves through the service and care of one another and the world by means of hospitality, sacrificial service, bearing witness, and sending out of others to do the same.
In order to live out our values we strive to emphasize…
Practices over mere experiences.
People over programs.
Principles over pragmatics.
Lifelong nurture over momentary sensationalism.
Full-orbed, whole-person discipleship that is rich in truth, goodness and beauty.
