Welcome to Westminster Presbyterian Church

We strive to be an "Intentionally Inclusive" community of believers and seekers, following Jesus of Nazareth through acts of compassion and participating in local and global causes to bring about God's kin-dom.

At Westminster we endeavor to give voice to a "progressive" expression of Christianity that emphasizes among other things:

  • intellectual integrity in matters of faith;
  • acceptance of all people regardless of ethnicity, creed, age, cultural background, or sexual orientation;
  • openness toward the value of other religious traditions;
  • a strong commitment to social justice, peacemaking, and the care of our planet.

Westminster tends to attract those from our community who have felt disenfranchised in one way or another by traditional churches and also students of The College of Wooster looking for a “safe”place to explore their faith and to express themselves. What is distinctive about us from other churches in our area is our informal setting in the Westminster Church House on the campus of The College of Wooster. We indeed embrace the “house” metaphor for our community with our sense of hospitality and our desire to be a welcoming and inclusive church for all. We invite you to use this website to explore our church's sense of community, mission, and justice.

Westminster is a place where you can be yourself, where you will be accepted, and where you can make a difference!
