As church community we strive to live and work as faithful disciples of Christ. Using Jesus’ words, we define our vision as light and salt in Ridgefield Park and beyond. Light, shining with hope for all who seek meaning and purpose for their lives and for all who are lost and walk in dark places. Salt by building community and engaging Ridgefield Park folks as part of a tasty community of faith with Christ’s grace and love.
We seek to use our building and facilities in creative ways to further God’s mission and to preserve these great assets for the benefit of future generations.
We believe that each person who is part of this community of faith is an ambassador for Christ who can make a difference in other people’s lives by inviting, welcoming and serving in the name of Jesus.
We seek to make the difference in the lives of our neighbors near and far, addressing spiritual as well as physical needs in ways that are relevant and transformative. We reach out beyond the walls of the church with our time, talents and financial resources to participate in God’s plan of reconciliation for the world, demonstrating the love and justice of Jesus Christ.
The First Presbyterian Church of Ridgefield Park is a place to learn and to grow, no matter your life situation. Together, we seek to deepen our understanding of our Christian faith and to engage in respectful interfaith dialogue.
