For First Presbyterian Church and its members, mission and outreach activities are a form of worship and an expression of our Christian commitment. We follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, taking seriously his charge to go into the world as a sent people.
As members of First Presbyterian, we believe that we are beginning to appreciate fully that it is in the nature of the church to be sent out rather than to expect the world to come to us. We believe that the church is not a building or an institution, but rather a group of people sent into the world.
We are committed to following Jesus' charge as expressed in John 20:21, "As God has sent me, so I send you." The mission programs at First Presbyterian are just one way in which we at First Presbyterian express our efforts to fulfill that charge.
