Who We Are


First Pres is Here…

To Worship God

Worship is our purpose as a church, and Sunday morning worship is the high point of our week. Gathering regularly for worship changes us from the inside out and energizes us to go where God sends us and live as His people in the world.

To Be Light and Life for the City

God has shaped First Pres as a multigenerational downtown church with a deep appreciation for biblical preaching and teaching, worship, shared leadership and community-building.

Our way of carrying out Jesus’s bold charge to “make disciples of all nations” is to bring the Light and Life found only in Him to our city and to cities around the world. We won't stop until His Kingdom is fully realized in the great city—the City of God.  

  • Our Worship and Music Ministries team leads vibrant, Scripture-centered worship in two modes each week in our Sanctuary and Worship Center. 
  • Our Discipleship Ministries lean into thoughtful, biblical teaching and build smaller communities through Life Groups
  • Our Family Ministries partner with parents of infants through high school students to raise kids in the Lord. 
  • Our Mission Engagement team forms rich, long-term partnership locally and globally to share the good news of Jesus and raise those most in need to a place where they can thrive. 
  • Our Caring Ministries reach out so that our church can a place of help for its people.


To Flourish 

First Pres is part of A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (ECO), which aims to “build flourishing churches that make disciples of Christ.” We fulfill our role as an ECO church when we’re thriving:

  • putting Jesus at the center of our lives
  • living under the authority of Scripture
  • learning constantly
  • being accountable in community
  • raising up innovative, egalitarian leadership
  • reaching around the world with the message of the Gospel
