Who We Are
Loving and Leading All People to Deeper Life in Jesus Christ
The mission of First Presbyterian Church is to love and lead all people to deeper life in Jesus Christ. Please join us on the journey to fulfill this purpose and become the church God is calling us to be. Everyone is welcome!LOVING AND LEADING None of us were meant to live a Christian life alone. That’s where the Church comes in. We believe God showed us his love especially through Jesus, but God also means to show his love through his Church, a community so distinct and loving that the world takes notice and is led back to God. It’s that kind of love, God’s love, that leads us out of our doors into our workplaces, our neighborhoods, and our world so we can point people back to him.
One of our core values at FPC is unwavering hospitality, and our staff is here to answer your questions and help you feel at home. Our office is open 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday and 8:00 am to noon on Friday. All of us can be reached at 432-684-7821.
Leadership empowered by the Holy Spirit allows the church to function at its best. Our congregation depends on the vital leadership of two governing bodies: the Session, made up of elders, and the Diaconate, consisting of Deacons.
At First Presbyterian, our church celebrates and strives to live out a biblical and historic Christian faith. Our faith, shaped by the Old and New Testaments of Scripture, can be summarized in the Nicene and Apostles’ Creed. As a member of the ECO Presbyterian tradition, we affirm ECO’s Essential Tenants as a brief summary of our doctrinal commitments.
