Meet Darlington Presbyterian:

Darlington Presbyterian Church, founded in 1827, is a member of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church and the Presbytery of the Coastal Mid-Atlantic. Gospel ministry through local and global missions has always been a major commitment of our church family.  We support many missionaries throughout the world who carry the Gospel by Word and deed.

By bringing people to Jesus and growing together in Him, we hope to join in the continued work of the Holy Spirit in our community with the following five initiatives:

  • Bring our neighbors, co-workers, families, friends, and strangers to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • Reach rising generations with the Gospel so that they too may tell of the wonders of God’s work.
  • Learn to effectively use today’s technology, online and in person, for outreach as well as for discipling our members to grow in their relationship with Christ.
  • Affirm God’s design for family by teaching the Biblical understanding of family, strengthening marriages and parents through classes and conferences, and providing resources.
  • Invest resources and our spiritual gifts to help those in need in our community as well as to help our city flourish through the Gospel.
