Our Church Family

Our Belief

Hillsborough Presbyterian Church is an open-hearted, open-minded congregation in the Reformed tradition, guided by the Book of Order for the Presbyterian Church (USA).  This community of faith grows out of love of God, responds to Jesus Christ’s call for redemption and service, and receives the transforming and reconciling presence of the Holy Spirit.

Why Church? "It is a family."

Our Mission

God has blessed our congregation with diverse vocational, religious, and denominational backgrounds. The goal for our congregation is to take these personal experiences and perform God’s work within our church and in cooperation with other communities.  Together with God, we will promote youth and young adult ministries, ecumenical unity within our town, and a deeper commitment to our local community’s spiritual and material needs. Building upon the strength we receive from God, we seek to serve God through programs of education and outreach, and to provide opportunities for fellowship and care.  We open the doors of this historic church to this community of faith and the community at large.  We encourage one another to share the good news of Jesus Christ with those around us through expressions of Christian faith in our daily lives.
