First Presbyterian is a community of faith with a mission to follow the Word with Christ's heart into the world - with open arms. In everything we do, we strive to fulfill our vision - to be a church where engagement with God’s Word shapes us into faithful and committed disciples of Jesus Christ. We joyfully unite in worship so that we will go into the world urgently with the Good News in transformational and sacrificial ways, inviting others to follow Christ.

  • that God transforms people and communities in ways sufficient to fulfill His will.
  • that we are called to share the Good News of God’s love in Jesus Christ.
  • that we are disciples of Jesus Christ called to service, and our mission is to equip our congregation for Christ’s sending into the world, that all we have is God’s gift for our responsible use in service to God.
  • that God’s Spirit knits us together as a community of faith for worship, shelter, and nurture empowering us for God’s service in the world.
  • that we are guided by scripture, nurtured by prayer and called to lead others into the responsible freedom of the new life in Christ, that all things are possible through the One who strengthens us, and that the future is bright if we are faithful to God’s good purposes. 

Our Mission and Vision

Following the Word with Christ’s heart into the world with open arms spreading the Good News, we are committed disciples of Christ engaged in God’s Word, joyfully united in worship and work, urgently taking the Good News into our community and the world.
We are young and old and all ages in between.  We are families, singles and couples. We hold a wide variety of views. We all claim Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We invite you to find your place among us! Visitors are welcome at worship and all church activities!
Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.

God comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time.

Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.

More than two million people call the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) their spiritual home. Worshiping in 10,000 Presbyterian congregations throughout the United States, they engage the communities in which they live and serve with God’s love.
