Matthew 25 Bold Vision

North Wilkesboro Presbyterian Church (NWPC) is a Matthew 25 church.

What does this mean?

Matthew 25:31–46 calls all of us to actively engage in the world around us, so our faith comes alive and we wake up to new possibilities. This bold vision focuses on three areas, and each church focuses on one area for their community.

The three areas are:

  • Building congregational vitality
  • Dismantling structural racism
  • Eradicating systemic poverty

NWPC has chosen to focus on eradicating systemic poverty in our county. In order to do this, we realize that we must also build congregational vitality and address structural racism. We work closely with our sister church, Beulah Presbyterian Church, and our mission partners to address poverty including, but not limited to, food insecurity.

For example, Beulah PC joined NWPC during the 2022 Lenten season to collect food items for Wilkes Ministry of H.O.P.E., a non-profit service provided to Wilkes County families through the Brushy Mountain Baptist Association; and Wilkes Recovery Revolution Inc., a non-profit organization founded by an NWPC member for those struggling with addiction that restores hope, repairs lives, and rebuilds community.
