Mission OPC is a congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church that is firmly committed to the inspired and infallible Word of God as shown in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and unswerving in our mission to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are a confessional congregation, adhering to the Westminster Confession and singing to our Triune God with Hymns and Psalms. We have a rich heritage in the Reformed Presbyterian tradition and are beholden to the legacy of faithful forefathers of the Christian Church who believed that the marks of the true church are the faithful preaching of the Word of God, the faithful administration of the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper, and the faithful administration of church discipline. We believe unapologetically that the Scriptures are the tenet of both faith and practice.
Mission OPC gathers weekly, twice on the Lord’s Day, to be edified in our faith and strengthened to fulfill the mission of our Lord to disciple the nations beginning with the sister cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota. Please join us for our traditional Christian worship service every Sunday morning at 10:30 AM followed by an evening service at 5PM. We meet at 1040 Como Avenue in Saint Paul, MN 55103. We are a local congregation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
The name of this church – Mission – was specifically chosen to keep in front of us a vision: that we would commit ourselves to being an outward focused church. In 1849, Rev. Edward Duffield Neill started the Presbyterian Mission to St. Paul. Rev. Neill was a pioneer, establishing the first Protestant church on the east side of the Mississippi River. That work was established to minister to new settlers in the area, as well as the Native Americans living below the river bluffs. Though much has obviously changed since 1849, many things remain the same. Many in St. Paul and the greater Twin Cities still need to hear the good news of a Savior who came to deal with sin and restore the world to its original design: a new creation made to glorify God.
