“Man’s chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever…”
These words, found in the answer to the first question of the Westminster Shorter Catechism encapsulate who we strive to be here at Resurrection Presbyterian Church.
At Resurrection Presbyterian Church (ResPres Church), we seek to truly enjoy the Lord as we glorify Him, growing together in God’s grace and truth. As such, our worship is prayerfully designed to be grounded in God’s Word, done entirely for God’s glory, and empowered by the grace and Spirit of Christ. It is our prayer that all who worship with us experience the power of the Triune God!
The leadership of ResPres is committed to communicating the truths of the Bible to the end that all come to a saving knowledge of Jesus. It is only through trusting in Jesus that one can be truly free of the burden of sin and equipped to live a victorious life. Most importantly, if you do not know Jesus, it is our hope and prayer that you come to know Him here. Saint Augustine once said that “our hearts are restless until they find rest in God,” and we believe that he was absolutely right. We were made in the image and likeness of God and are never truly content until we find our rest in Him. It is our prayer that through ResPres you may truly know Him.
ResPres is a community of saints who strive to live in unity with one another, while proactively being witnesses of the power of God to a lost world. Our desire is to see the good news of the Gospel spread to every household in Central Illinois, and beyond!
ResPres is a generationally-inclusive church, and we encourage all who come to actively participate – regardless of age. (Children are not sent away from the rest of the church during the worship hour!) As Jesus said in Matthew 19:14, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” To this we say, “Amen and amen!” If needed though, we do provide space for parents with nursing infants & we have “mother’s helpers” ready to assist if your hands are full.
ResPres is also a member congregation of the Covenant Presbyterian Church, a group of churches committed to living out doctrinal truth for the glory of God.
We meet every Sunday at 10am in Peoria, IL, and have a regular variety of midweek activities (for details on our more informal events and midweek activities, please contact us!) For all who do come and worship with us, we invite you to plan on staying for lunch. Each week, right after worship, we enjoy a wonderful shared meal.
If you would like to learn more about our church, please give us a call or send us an email. We would love to hear from you & hope to be able to serve you! As a body, we are here to serve you – as we serve Jesus!
