Purpose and Mission
A key issue for us is church health, not church growth. Spiritually healthy churches are churches that typically grow numerically as well.
We want to discern God's vision and purpose for TBPC so that neither tradition, personalities, finances, programs, buildings, events nor seekers would drive TBPC. Rather, TBPC would be a church that is driven by God's purposes for us, as discerned collectively by our leadership.
We are committed to helping people to know Christ, grow in Christ, serve Christ, share Christ, and worship Christ. We want to produce disciples and not simply produce bodies, budgets and buildings.
The mission of the Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church is to bring people to Jesus Christ and membership in his church family, develop them to Christlike maturity, equip them for their ministry in the church and life mission in the world, in order to magnify God’s name.
