Who We Are

We are a very diverse congregation, with many different gifts, opportunities and theological positions. We are convinced that the Spirit uses these to enable us in ministry and mission. We often don’t understand many of our differences, but we celebrate the way they keep us talking to one another and growing in the practice of our faith.

I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit,
because apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5)

We at First Presbyterian Church believe we are indeed the branches of Christ, charged with the fruit-bearing mission of the gospel. We believe this mission to be possible only because we draw our life from our relationship to the true vine, who connects us to the fullness of God; the very God who nurtures, and as necessary prunes. This image also reminds us that the vine has many branches other than our congregation or denomination. We respect and depend upon other branches, individuals, and faith communities who proclaim Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
