Our Mission and Vision

First Presbyterian Church is called by Christ to love God, love one another, and love our community. Wherever we are, we are called to be the people of God in ways that point others to the abundant life Christ has made available to all! We continue to focus on developing our worship, nurturing the growth of the people of God, and serving God and neighbor.

We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), a nationwide communion of Christian congregations in the Reformed tradition, the Presbytery of Southeastern Illinois (a group of Presbyterian congregations in our area of the United States), and the Synod of Lincoln Trails (a group of presbyteries in Indiana and Illinois). Being Presbyterian means being connected with others in worship and service, and these groups enable us to to share resources and encouragement as we seek to glorify God and serve others.
