Who We Are
First Presbyterian is a family of faith centered on a belief in Jesus Christ. Grounded in that belief, we seek to follow Christ’s way in our world—loving God with heart, soul, mind, and strength, and loving neighbor as self.
Like most families, we’re not all the same. We all have experienced God’s presence in different ways. Some of us grew up as Presbyterians (or Methodists, or Lutherans, or Catholics…) and have come to trust the church as an institution. Others might playfully consider themselves “spiritually hungry, but institutionally suspicious.” Together we seek to honor our traditions while we open ourselves to the new things God is doing in our midst. Through it all, we hope that our very lives bear witness to Christ—that our worship, our learning, our service, and our love all point to the all-encompassing love of God in Jesus Christ.
