who we are

our vision

"We exist to be a flourishing church that makes disciples of Jesus Christ. We long for people to know Jesus, and because they know him, to follow Jesus, and because they know and follow Jesus, to share his heart more and more to reach out with the good news of God’s love to a lost and broken world."

– Jesse Skiffington

our mission

"We move toward our vision by creating environments where people are mobilized to go deeper with Jesus and reach wider with his love."

"We believe in taking practical, incremental steps to grow in faith and make a difference in the world."

– Jesse Skiffington

who we are

We are an intergenerational, Christ-centered, community committed to helping each person to go deeper with Jesus and reach wider with his love. When we move toward our vision and live out our mission, we flourish as a church, we are better able to love our neighbors inside the church and in the world around us, trusting that the Lord works through us to lead people to saving faith and deeper discipleship.

our story

In 2022, Marine View celebrated 100 years of mission and ministry in the Dash Point area. Marine View began as a Sunday School in the original Dash Point School in 1922 and our church family has been committed to loving and serving kids, families, and people of all ages and stages of life ever since. Join us on an upcoming Sunday to learn more about our story and discover your place in it.


A little more about us

Marine View is connected to a growing movement of Christ-centered Presbyterian churches - simply called ECO for short. Together as a denomination we are committed to building flourishing churches that make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Learn more at:

Presbyterians are connected to the Reformed Tradition within the Protestant wing of the Christian Church. The Reformed tradition celebrates “the Church reformed and always reforming.” In others words, there are always deeper truths to uncover and better ways of living a life of faith. The Reformed tradition affords room for a range of people and perspectives under the lordship of Jesus Christ. The Marine View community includes folks who sit on all sides of just about every major political or social issue of our day who are united in the love of Jesus Christ and in affirming essential beliefs articulated in ECO’s polity and theology documents.

Elders & Deacons

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
