Who We Are
OUR MISSION: Bearing witness to the beauty of Christ for the glory of God and the good of the world.
OUR NAME: A threshold is defined as a doorway, a transition point, or a new beginning. We believe that each of these has vivid implications for the spiritual life. We all bring our full relationship with God when we receive Christ as Lord and Savior. This important time in our lives opens a whole new life for us, and we spend the rest of our lives experiencing this new beginning and learning what it means to follow Christ.

OUR VALUES: We believe God has called the people of Threshold Church to: Share Christ through outreach; Grow through God's Word; Create beauty through worship and the arts; Serve generously through giving; Live purposefully through community.
OUR MEASURES: As disciples of Christ, we are growing in our: Biblical knowledge and discernment; Identity in the Triune God; Witness to the beauty of Christ with the world; Love of God and others; Faithfulness and authenticity.
Elders & Deacons
Elders share authority with the Pastors, representing the mind of Christ as they understand it in the various courts of the church, watch over the spiritual welfare of the people, and may be appointed to participate in Presbytery or General Assembly because the EPC is a connectional church. Collectively, the Ruling Elders are called the Session.
The office of Deacons, under the authority of the Session, is one of compassion, concern for needs, serving others, and is marked by sympathy and service. Duties include care, maintenance, and preparation of the church and its facilities.
