Welcome to Westminster Presbyterian Church
Westminster strives to be an “Intentionally Inclusive” community of believers and seekers, following the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. Through worship, study, and acts of compassion aimed at peacemaking, we seek to bring about God’s kin-dom in how we express our faith.
At Westminster, we emphasize a “progressive” expression of Christianity that values:
- intellectual integrity in matters of faith
- acceptance of all people regardless of ethnicity, creed, age, cultural background, gender, or sexual orientation
- openness toward the value of other religious traditions
- a strong commitment to social justice, peacemaking, and the care of our planet
Westminster Presbyterian Church has historic roots in the Wooster community, and was created to serve as the Congregation-in-Residence of The College of Wooster. We have a long-standing tradition of being a place where students and all community members can come and explore their faith without judgment. Westminster tends to attract those who have felt excluded in one way or another by traditional churches. We seek to be a community that values and affirms all kinds of diversity, and we embrace the “house” metaphor to emphasize our commitment to radical hospitality and a desire to be a welcoming and inclusive church for all.
