The Vision of Our Congregation

We see ourselves as the embracing arms of Jesus Christ for each other, for the community, and for the world in order to share the amazing love of God, to reflect the light of Jesus Christ, and to live and serve joyfully in the Spirit's Power.

The Session is pleased to invite the Rev. Dr. Chreston Holoman to lead a 10-week Bible study on the Book of Exodus on Thursdays from 10:00 to 11:30 in the church library beginning on Thurs., Oct. 5.

His insights and love of scripture will make this a memorable course. All are welcome.

Our purpose

First Presbyterian Church provides rich experiences of the worship of God the Father in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit. We strive to be faithful to Reformed tradition as we encounter it in our denomination, the PC(USA). We welcome and encourage personal expressions of faith as guided by the Spirit and illuminated by the Bible.

In all manner of ways, we proclaim and acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord and Head of the Church. To that end, we are informed by the Spirit through Scripture, the highest authority of our faith. In addition, we adhere to confessions and creeds common to the ecumenical, Reformed and Presbyterian traditions.
