The Westminster Foundation Board, which oversees the ministry of Princeton Presbyterians, adopted the following mission and value statements in February 2018. We are excited for them to help guide our planning for the 2018-2019 academic year!
Princeton Presbyterians welcomes all students into our beloved community to worship God in joy and hope and equip a new generation of Christian servant leaders.
Because Christ welcomes all to the Lord’s Table, we welcome students from all walks of life. We celebrate people of all genders, sexualities, nationalities, ethnicities, and abilities as beloved children of God.
Because Scripture calls us to “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God,”* we commit ourselves to the flourishing of all people and the restoration of creation through acts of service, public witness, and advocacy.
Beloved Learning Community
Because God has made us members of Christ’s Body, we cultivate our hearts and minds through worship together and the study of Scripture. We equip a new generation of Christian servant-leaders with “energy, imagination, intelligence, and love."*

Joy & Hope
Because the Spirit gives us courage in a broken and fearful world,* we persevere in the truth that God’s Word is Good News for us and for the world. We proclaim in our words and actions that human value is not measured by performance or productivity, but in the steadfast love of the God who made us.

Because we are rooted in the Presbyterian Tradition, we cherish connections with the wider church in local congregations, the Presbytery of New Brunswick, the Synod of the Northeast, and the General Assembly of the PC(USA). Grounded in grace, we anticipate the ongoing movement of the Spirit in every season and respond with gratitude and continued reformation.
