First Presbyterian Church

About Us

Faithfully serving Christ in Marion County and the world since 1857 and still growing!

First Presbyterian Church is a 900 member congregation; a member of the National Society of Historic Places, having been established in 1857; and belongs to the Presbytery of St. Augustine of PC(USA).

We are located in the heart of the historic district in Ocala, Florida. Worship ranges from casual to traditional. We follow a structure which calls us to worship; invites our praise; provides a special time for children; challenges and comforts us with the Word read, preached and demonstrated through the sacraments; sung through the anthems and hymns; and leads us in prayers of thanks and petition.

We are about traditional and contemporary worship. We have a chancel choir, children's choir and a handbell choir.

We are about loving fellowship and just plain good fun. We strive to honor our past, while preparing for the future. We are mindful that we are a community of faith striving to celebrate the grace of God in Jesus Christ, while sharing God's love with one another and those who seek to join our fellowship.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Jesus came not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.
