Vision Statement

Welcome! Davidson College Presbyterian Church is part of the Body of Christ – worshipping, learning, serving, loving, and giving – seeking to realize God’s vision for the world. We are a welcoming, affirming and inclusive PC(USA) congregation in the heart of Davidson, NC committed to being a witness for Jesus Christ on the corner of the Davidson College campus and the community of Davidson. We hope you will browse this website to learn more about how we are living out God’s call for us in this time and place. We invite you to come and join us as we grow in faith and faithfulness as God’s people.


To make our part in this vision a reality we will:

Worship God in the Reformed tradition, with integrity and diversity. Accept our personal call and mission from God to make a difference. Educate ourselves and our families so that we continue to grow in grace and learning. Engage and nurture those who study and work at Davidson College. Participate in activities that attack the causes of poverty and injustice, both here and around the world. Form a true community for everyone wherever they are in their faith journey. Give our time and resources to support our vision, acknowledging that everything we have belongs to God.

At DCPC, we identify ourselves as a welcoming, affirming and inclusive community of faith.  In 2018, our Presbyterian Church (USA) General Assembly passed a series of statements about the welcome, inclusion and celebration of our LGBTQ(IA)+ siblings.  You can read them here.  At DCPC we are grateful to share in this welcome, affirmation and celebration of our LGBTQ(IA)+ siblings.


To further our vision of God’s kingdom, in every decision we will:

 Live according to the cooperative community Jesus taught by using respect, generosity, and grace in our interactions. Use inclusive methods that engage and integrate, intending a fulfilling spiritual experience for everyone. Follow the Bible as the inspired word of God, using its teachings as encouragement and example to seek and fulfill our role in God’s world.
