All Saints Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). We believe that the Church exists to be the body of Christ to a broken world. Since our beginnings in 2003, we have sought to live out that calling here in the city of Austin. We hope to form our church, both corporately and each person individually, to follow Jesus as King by doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly with our God.
Our mission statement, adopted in 2012 and rearticulated on our 18th anniversary, lays out three ways in which our life as Christ's body is shaped - in worship, through spiritual formation, and in service.
- The first is simply showing up at worship. Worship is the center of our church life and place in which we, first and foremost, respond to God's call to love him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
- The second is being formed spiritually. The church is the people of God who are growing up in every way into Christ. This formation is the work of the Holy Spirit and is rooted in and shaped by the Scriptures. Formation necessarily occurs in the church community as the Word of God is heard, understood, applied, and lived together — among individuals and among families.
- The third way is by living out lives of service. God is at work in Christ bringing spiritual, social, and physical life and peace to the world. We want to humbly and boldly tell the redemptive story of Jesus to the city of Austin while joining others who are telling it throughout our region, nation, and world. Thus, our prayer is for the Lord to use us to plant churches, establish ministries of mercy and justice, partner with foreign missionaries, and send each of our members out into their particular vocations to bring the peace of Christ to our world.
