What do you believe? What is Presbyterian?
Presbyterian” means a Church governed by elders. Presbyterians trace their history back to John Calvin(d. 1564). If Martin Luther was the heart of the reformation, Calvin was it’s mind. Presbyterians approach faith with both heart and mind and try to live as Christians with order and ardor. As part of the 2 million member Presbyterian Church (USA), First Church affirms our Presbyterian heritage by developing an informed and Biblically – literate laity; understanding work as vocation; encouraging Christian unity; promoting social justice and individual morality; and having an unshakable confidence in the rule of God over creation.
