A Warm Welcome

Welcome to Independent Presbyterian Church! We hope you will join us soon in worship services, Christian education classes, music events, and fellowship opportunities.
Independent Presbyterian Church is a unique and amazing church family that has among its members people from almost every tradition and background of the Christian church. We share a commitment to Jesus Christ and an earnest desire to proclaim his Lordship through our worship and service. Our great desire is to equip and enable disciples of Christ to witness to the gospel and demonstrate the love, mercy and justice of Jesus Christ.
We invite you to share in our commitment, fellowship, energy and enthusiasm as we seek to grow in our faith and our witness to Jesus Christ.
