Adding New Chapters to an Old Story

Grounded in the Presbyterian tradition of Christian faith, we believe that God has placed First Presbyterian Church in this time and place to begin a new chapter in an old story, by developing Christian faith that honors and cherishes tradition, while not being bound by traditionalism. We believe that God is Calling First Presbyterian Church to take up the challenge of communicating the good news of Jesus Christ to generations through:

 

Meaningful worship that makes the word of God available to both new and mature followers of Jesus Christ;

Relevant instruction focused on growing new disciples and equipping mature saints;

Authentic fellowship that builds true community by emphasizing our belonging to one another through Jesus Christ;

Compassionate Christ-centered outreach that makes a difference, locally and globally.

 

We believe that God has called us to be a haven of Christian community, and a representative and witness for Christ in Aiken, and in the world.
