Core Values

First Presbyterian Church welcomes all who worship here. We honor and celebrate the human diversity and unity that God gives us in Christ. We welcome individuals of every age, race, nationality, gender, ability, sexual orientation and economic circumstance to participate fully in the life of the church.


Worshipping God in community and bearing witness to God’s love and justice in the world.

Core Values

Reformed Worship: Through a shared liturgy of Word and Sacrament, FPC invites all, in creative and faithful ways, to focus heart, soul, and mind to the Glory of God.

Diversity and Inclusivity: As God has claimed us in the waters of baptism with our differences, we are called to invite and nurture a diverse and inclusive community.

Faith Exploration: FPC welcomes and encourages all to explore the call to discipleship and to consider questions of faith at all points on their journey with the Risen Christ.

Pastoral Care: God has loved us first; so too, we love and care for one another, nurturing mind, body and spirit throughout life’s journey.

Historic Placement: “Downtown by history and by choice,” we are committed to being a witness to God’s steadfast love and justice in the heart of the city.

Social Mission: FPC advocates for social justice and responds to the “cries of the poor,” remembering Jesus’ promise to be found among the hungry, homeless, sick and imprisoned.

Faithful Stewardship: Called to be stewards of the gifts God has provided, we support the foundation that enables this faith community to be generous in hospitality and in faithful ministry.

Community: As a reflection of God’s beloved community, we seek to affirm and challenge one another; rejoicing together as the Body of Christ.
