What We’re About

Christ Presbyterian Church is a community centered in Christ and experiencing God’s extraordinary grace. Whether you’ve had a relationship with God your whole life or have questions about God’s existence, you may find a fit in CPC’s community. Doubts, fears and hurts are welcomed. We seek to be caring, real people who love God, love Madison, and love making a difference through serving and partnering with others. We gather in love, grow by grace, and go into the world to serve.

Our Vision

For Worship

We believe that God’s people experience God’s presence in worship. Every week we offer diverse and participative worship experiences that connect to our daily lives and inspire through a wide range of artistic expressions.

For Community

We intentionally welcome all people to our community and invite them to join with us on our faith journey. We enjoy being together and seek honest, caring relationships that comfort, encourage, and challenge.

For Discipleship

We know Jesus Christ loves us as we are, and encourages us to grow spiritually and relationally. We believe lasting growth and change happen in our lives as we engage with others and God’s word.

For Service & Justice

We believe God’s love is to be shared to bring peace, comfort, and justice, so we work with local and global mission partners to learn and be actively engaged in efforts toward reconciliation and strengthening our community.

Why do you attend CPC?

“We became members because we were ready to join a faith community that enriches our family life. Upon arrival at Christ Presbyterian Church, it felt familiar and the timing in our lives is ripe to be in a supporting faith community.”

Kate and Mark Mayefske

“At Christ Presbyterian Church you really feel like you are a part of a big family. We share each other’s good times and challenging times.  We have always felt like we belong here and love how we are all growing together in faith.”

Chidi and Chineyrie Obasi

“We became members of Christ Presbyterian Church because we needed/wanted a community of faith to continue to grow in and Christ Presbyterian felt like home.”

Karen King and Barb Wolter

“Christ Presbyterian Church is full of welcoming people. Not only do I love coming to church here, but I have become an active volunteer in the International Ministry.”
