The primary purpose of The Upper Ohio Valley Presbytery is to

churches within its jurisdiction to carry out their call to prepare the saints
to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others through worship, discipleship,
fellowship, ministry and mission.
are a diverse people - urban and rural, poor and rich, people of
steel, coal, factory and farm, heirs of various ethnic and
Appalachian cultures. We live with social, theological,
political and economic tension but we are made one in Christ.
We are Christians in the Reformed Tradition, called to be in
covenant relationship with God and with one another. We will
encourage one another, support one another, strengthen one another
and do ministry together in service to God to the glory of Jesus
We believe God loves us, frees us, and offers us
wholeness through the grace of Jesus Christ. We believe
Jesus Christ is God with us and has authority over us. We
believe the Holy Spirit empowers us to accept and use God's
gifts. We believe the Old and New Testaments are the
inspired written Word of God that reveals God to us and instructs
us in faithful living. We believe the church is the body of
Christ calling us into family relationship to minister globally,
regionally and locally.
and celebrate the Good News of Jesus Christ in Presbytery, in
churches and in communities through word and deed. We work
together as congregations to carry out the mission of the churches
and the Presbytery; to engage in evangelism, education and
service. We strive to promote justice and righteousness.
We encourage, support and challenge congregations as they
minister. We nurture the growth and health of congregations,
church professionals and their families. We interpret the
work of the Presbytery, Synod and General Assembly to the sessions
and congregations of our presbytery; and we represent the concerns
of our members to Synod and General Assembly. We uphold and
interpret the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA) within
the Reformed Tradition.
