Faith Presbyterian Church

 

Welcome to Faith Presbyterian Church

 

You're Invited
Thank you for your interest in Faith Presbyterian Church (FPC) and for checking out our website. We are a smaller congregation, eager to welcome newcomers. We enjoy getting to know people by name and we seek to have deeper, more meaningful relationships even in the fast-paced fragmented world of the Maryland suburbs of Washington DC. more>

 

Pastor's Monthly Message: Our Prayer in 2015

 What are you praying for in 2015? As we begin this new year, my prayer is that we grow in both maturity and numbers.  Both are needed.  Growing disciples of Jesus are not content with just their personal growth.  They are also concerned with making other disciples of Jesus.  This is the calling Jesus gave his disciples in Matthew 28 and in it he said: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.  And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.  (Matthew 28:19-20)

 

We get a sense of the breadth or scope of this command: new disciples are to be made and they will come from all nations.  At the same time, we get a sense of the depth of this commission: learning to observe and obey all that Jesus has commanded.  The followers of Jesus are not called to be a mile wide and an inch deep.  Instead, they are called to be as wide as the earth and as deep as the sea.
