What We Believe
We care passionately for one another and work hard to see that justice and righteousness thrive in our world.
God Is Love
First Presbyterian Church is called to embody God’s love, made known in Jesus Christ, in life-giving ways, and to engage with God in transforming lives, communities, and institutions, to reflect God’s goodness.
We Are All Disciples
We believe that faith is best expressed in word and deed, and that we are called to live our lives as examples, however imperfect, and as generous expressions of gratitude to God and service to others.
The Spirit Empowers
We believe that “faith seeking understanding” is a significant part of the life of a disciple. We continue to discover what the Bible says, who Jesus was and who he calls us to be, and who we are as Presbyterian Christians.
The Reverend Anna von Winckler
We are all God’s children, and all are welcome in God’s house
I hope that as you celebrate the 200th anniversary of your church’s existence, you are able to see how God’s faithfulness has been with your congregation throughout the centuries – through the challenges and the hardships there must have been much faith and joy that encourage the members to continue in faithful worship and service to our loving and generous God. I know that God is with you and will continue to encourage and direct all of us as we look to the future and all that God has planned for this coming year.
