First Presbyterian Church is a diverse faith family that seeks to be open and inclusive in our expressions of our Christian faith and in our attitudes to each other and to our community.
As a member congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), we embrace the historic confessions of the faith as contained in the Book of Confessions and find particular meaning in two of those confessions.
The Brief Statement of Faith connects us to the long history of Christian thought about God,Christ, and the Holy Spirit and reminds us of our unity with the whole Body of Christ.
The Confession of 1967, written in troubled national times, reminds us of the importance of reconciliation for our society and the daily world we live in.
