Mission Statement

"Our Church exists to glorify and worship God, to serve our community, and to witness the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. "


Church History

Click to read a history of the church that was prepared for our 60th anniversary in May, 2015

Welcome to Westminster By-The-Sea Presbyterian Church.
We are a church for all ages with over 750 members.





Dear Friend:

"This church exists to glorify and worship God, to serve this community, and through the
benevolent program of its parent denomination, the Presbyterian Church (USA) to witness to
the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. We seek to change lives for the better!"

In short, here is what we believe:

  - That the worship of God Almighty, Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, is the hub of the wheel of the church.  All that we do is inspired by what we offer God in worship and what God commissions us to do in the name of Jesus.  We stand with Soren Kierkegaard in believing that in the great drama of worship, those in the congregation are actors, the pastors and choirs are the directors, and God is the audience.

– That Jesus is Lord and Savior of the world; and that the Bible is the Word of God. 

– That the church carries out two sacred acts that Jesus commanded his followers to do until he comes again: the Sacrament of Baptism and the Sacrament of Holy Communion.  In short, as our Vision statement says: we strive to be “a caring community, inspired by God, extending the hand of Christian fellowship to all, making disciples, and shining the light of Christ in our community and world; a church for all ages, honoring both old traditions, and personal walks with God.”  Come to Westminster when you are in the area.  The white colonial “church that looks like a church” will attract you to visit.  We hope and believe that the people will make you long to return. 

Faithfully yours,

Rev. Dr. Jeffrey A. Sumner, Minister
