Welcome to First Presbyterian Church

We are inclusive, caring, and passionate about helping others in our community and world.

Our church is a place where all people can feel safe, supported, and needed.

What we believe

Our guiding principle is to “Love your Lord with all your heart, your soul, your mind and your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself.” We are part of The Presbyterian Church (USA) which is a Reformed faith with a progressive stance toward doctrine and interpretation of the Scriptures. Because each person’s faith journey is unique, individual exploration is encouraged and supported through worship, education, and small groups.

Our mission statement

….to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ who know God and through love, serve the Lord and others.

We will accomplish our mission by:

  • practicing radical hospitality

  • passionate worship,

  • intentional faith development,

  • risk-taking mission,

  • and extravagant generosity.
