Welcome to First Presbyterian Church!
We are a small congregation with energy and commitment to serving God and neighbor through inspiring worship and compassionate service.
We are a part of the Reformed tradition and practice the sacrament of baptism as the sign and seal of our belonging to God. Baptism points to that mystery of faith we call salvation.
We gather at the Table of our Lord. Also known as the Eucharist, Communion, and the Lord's Supper, it is a sign of the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives and reminds us of our dependence on Christ for our lives.
We are guided and ruled by the Word of God, Jesus Christ. Christ is revealed to us in the scripture of the Hebrew bible (Old Testament) and the New Testament. We value Bible study, preaching, and scripture reading. Even so, we can only understand and hear the Word with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Each of these; our belonging to God, our dependence on Jesus Christ, and the guidance of the Holy Spirit leads us into the world. Our reason for being a church is described in our mission statement;
To live and love in faith, Identifying and using all the gifts, talents and resources that God has given us. We minister to spiritual, physical and emotional needs, serving with love in God's name.
