Knowlton began in 1766 and has so far planted three daughter churches. We are conscious of the pressures of daily life - the early morning commute, the back-to-back meetings, the job insecurity, hectic children's activity schedules - and how we make it difficult to grow in the knowledge and grace of Christ. So we seek as a community to provide many opportunities to know Jesus and make Him known together.
Knowlton Presbyterian is a church in and for the community, existing to be a vibrant expression of who God is––gracious, present, and hospitable. We are part of that historical, counter-cultural community that Jesus started and continues to build, sustain, and perfect.
WE EXIST TO EXPRESS IN WORD AND IN DEED who God is
We’re a worshiping community rooted in the belief that the historic Christian gospel is true, compelling, and powerful to change lives towards freedom, wholeness, and hope. We seek to embody and articulate this gospel of grace, bringing about spiritual, social, and cultural renewal in our neighborhoods and throughout the world.
We believe that the gospel is not something that ‘I have and someone else needs’; rather it’s something that everyone needs all the time. So we're less interested in religious ‘how-tos’ and more interested in celebrating the abundant, free grace of a loving God, serving our local community and praying for her peace.
together, we desire to celebrate the abundant, free grace of a loving God
We try to communicate in our immediate context while being rooted in the deep, rich teaching of the church, wholeheartedly embracing the orthodox Christian faith as expressed in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. We are committed to the theological heritage of the Protestant Church grounded in the Westminster Confession of Faith. We partner with ministries throughout the region ranging from a fine arts cooperative and addictions counseling to women's crisis centers and church planting. Knowlton is also active globally in community development, disaster relief, and new church growth. We are blessed to have a full range of ages, colors, professions, backgrounds, interests, gifts, and stories. Our common story is one of lives changed by the grace of God in Jesus Christ; you have friends here and we welcome you in Jesus' name.
None of us have it all together, and true, lasting hope is ours only in Jesus. So wherever you are on your spiritual journey, whether skeptical or mildly curious about Christianity, or whether you are already a committed follower of Jesus Christ, we welcome you.
