What We Believe
The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet. –Frederick Buechner
Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church is a missional church: called to worship, empowered to serve, inspiring disciples, and creating community. Worship, community, education, and mission are the cornerstones of the body of Christ at Rumple. We believe the Holy Spirit calls us to respond in these ways.
We respond to God’s presence and activity in our lives and in our world by worshiping God together. We approach worship with reverence, humility, awe, wonder, and joy. Learn more about how Rumple conducts worship.
We nurture, support, and guide people through the many seasons of personal and communal life in mutual ministries of care and compassion, sharing joys and sorrows, supporting in times of stress and need, and offering mutual forgiveness and reconciliation.

We seek from God the transformation and renewal of our minds as we live and grow as disciples who journey together daily in the grace of God. Learn how Rumple continues to grow through education.
We participate in God’s work in the world by ministering to the needs within and beyond the High Country and by engaging in the struggle to free people from sin, fear, oppression, hunger, and injustice. Find out how Rumple strives to help those in need through our mission.
Built upon these four foundational strengths, Rumple commits to follow Jesus Christ into a sustainable future that reaches far beyond our slate and stone.
Statement Of Faith
As a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA), Rumple believes:
Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.
God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time.
Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.
