Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Matthew 28:19-20

Music & Worship Arts
First Presbyterian is a missional church, meaning that our focus is on Jesus’ command to go into all the world and be his ambassadors, adopting a missionary stance in relation to our culture. It is our intention as a congregation to embody this missional aspect of Christian discipleship.

The Church is wherever followers of Jesus are in the world. Our vision is to participate in God’s global plan to bring Him glory from all the people groups of the earth as well as our community. Our mission is to offer a balanced, biblical, and strategic evangelistic and cross-cultural ministry through FPC in fulfillment of Jesus’ mandate to be His witnesses (Acts 1:8). See below how you can be actively involved in a missional lifestyle through outreach projects, support of missionaries, agencies, and organizations, and mission education.

Our vision to share the gospel on every continent is being realized. From our mission work in the Dominican Republic to supporting an Iranian sister church in England and sister churches in Egypt, we are experiencing God at work through His kingdom around the globe.
