Who we are

First Presbyterian Church is a dynamic, transforming church, where all are welcome, lives are changed, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ is lived and proclaimed.

If you could put a church anywhere in America, you’d put one right here, in the middle of the city acclaimed as the “most livable” in the country. We’ve been here since 1773.

Yet cities aren’t always “livable” for everyone. Plenty of folks are hurting, hungry, homeless, and more. Everyone needs the love, grace, and truth of Jesus Christ.


Join us in reaching out with compassion to the heart of the city and around the world. Experience vibrant, classic worship. Just relax, and take in the beauty of one of the city’s most breathtaking spaces.
