Our Vision

Here to Serve is our guiding vision adopted to better position First Presbyterian Church to amplify the message of the gospel for the sake of our future, neighborhood, and city.

For 180 years, our church has sought to follow Jesus’ example of open-handed service.
And we are committed to remaining a church that answers the Gospel call to give of ourselves
HERE in the households, communities, and city that God has placed us.

We are here.

There is a reason God placed First Presbyterian Church here – in this growing and changing neighborhood, in the heart of this city of opportunity and innovation. Right where we are, we have the opportunity to have a profound impact for the sake of the gospel.

You are here.

There is a reason you are where you are – in each setting, relationship, and interaction. God has sent you to your unique context – your home, your neighborhood, your workplace – to show His love to people in a way that no one else can.

What does it mean to be a church Here to Serve? It means that as a community, we individually and collectively pledge ourselves daily to the mission God has for our community. To aid us in this call, the leadership of FPC has established four priorities central to living out our vision to be A Church Here to Serve:

To learn more about each of these priorities, our pastors will lead us in a special Here to Serve sermon series from August 21–October 2, 2022. Join us in person or online to hear these powerful messages, or visit our online campus to view a replay.

Today we begin a new journey together through these priorities, discovering how we can each commit, through our time and resources, to being individuals Here to Serve, and together fulfill God’s plan for FPC.
