Values at First Presbyterian Church

Jesus-Shaped Identity:

We believe Jesus Christ must be at the center of our lives and making disciples of Jesus is the core of our ministry.


Biblical Integrity:

We believe the Bible is the unique and authoritative Word of God, which teaches all that is necessary for faith and life. The prominence of God's Word over our lives shapes our priorities, and the unrivaled authority of the Bible directs our actions to be in concert with Christ's very best for our lives.


Missional Centrality:

We believe in living out the whole of the Great Commission - including evangelism, spiritual formation, compassion, and redemptive justice - in our communities and around the world.
