The word ‘Presbyterian’ comes from the Greek word presbytos meaning ‘elder’. Our church is led by elders and pastors chosen by the congregation as Spirit-filled and Spirit-led people.
Longview Presbyterian Church was started in 1972 and has been “Seeking Christ’s Way and Welcoming All” ever since.
Longview Presbyterian Church has always had an outward missional focus. From their beginnings supporting Vietnamese refugees and fighting for equal pay for women in the workplace to the current day advocating for LGBTQ+ rights and fighting to eradicate systemic poverty, LPC has always had a passion to serve the “least of these.”

MATTHEW 25 INITIATIVE
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. Convicted by this passage, both the 222nd and 223rd General Assemblies (2016 and 2018) exhorted the PC(USA) to act boldly and compassionately to serve people who are hungry, oppressed, imprisoned or poor.
POOR PEOPLE’S CAMPAIGN
In 1968, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others called for a “revolution of values” in America. They sought to build a broad, fusion movement that could unite poor and impacted communities across the country. Their name was a direct cry from the underside of history: The Poor People’s Campaign. Today, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival has picked up this unfinished work.
COVENANT NETWORK OF PRESBYTERIANS
