Who we are
First Presbyterian Church exists to glorify God through prayerful worship, learning and living by Scripture, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, nurturing and enlarging the fellowship of the Church, and serving those in need.
First Presbyterian Church strives to maintain a strong, scripturally based message and to offer worship that considers our diversity and assumes the presence of the Holy Spirit to guide and empower us. Our worship of God and Christ is joyful, reverent, peaceful, and personal.
By providing a multi-faceted educational environment, we intend to equip the people of God with the intellectual and theological tools to understand that we are stewards of God’s gifts so we may live obedient, Spirit-filled lives.
We are dedicated to living our faith by sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ through word and deed with our fellow sojourners of the faith, as well as those who have little or no relationship with Christ. We strive to be known as a caring church that truly projects the love and grace of Jesus in a hurting and fearful world.
With God’s help, we aspire to create an inclusive, caring, and supportive church family. Our goal is to create an environment that shelters, nurtures, and provides for the Spiritual fellowship of the children of God.
Our intention is for every generation of our church to demonstrate God’s Kingdom by entering our community and the world: to feed the hungry, to give drink to the thirsty, to clothe the naked; thus, following the mandate of Jesus Christ.
