The Presbytery exists for the purpose of being an agent in and an enabler of the mission of the Church of Jesus Christ on behalf of the concerns and needs of those who live within its bounds. The Presbytery holds and reaffirms, within the context of its commitment to the Church universal, a special commitment to the basic principle of Presbyterian polity (F-3.00) and that the nature of Presbyterian order is such that it shares power and responsibility (F-3.0203). This means that the relationship between the Presbytery and its member
congregations is a two–way relationship – prophetic and pastoral; leading and responding . . . . Therefore, we expect God’s call to action and reflection to come from congregations and Presbytery Committees, from teaching elders and ruling elders, from sessions and General Council.
