Who We Are
Our mission statement summarizes our congregation in this way. First Presbyterian Church is a community of Christian believers called by God through faith in Jesus Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to lift up our hearts in worship and fellowship, lift up our heads in Christian nurture and lift up our hands in service to others to the glory of God. Love God. Love People.
That statement reflects our core values as a congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ. First Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Presbytery of Southern Kansas and the Synod of Mid-America. Strong in our Biblical faith and reformed heritage, we believe God calls us to be the Church together because our faith and mission are stronger and more effective when we work together. Our Biblical call teaches us that discipleship begins in worship of the Sovereign God, with all else flowing from worship into the world. There, we seek to be Christ's hands and heart, inviting all people into our fellowship of believers. Come and worship with us!
