First Presbyterian Church
We believe God loves every person without exception. As followers of Christ, we strive to be a holy community that reflects the diversity of God’s creation through the welcome and full participation of every age, ability, socioeconomic status, family background, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, skin color, and racial identity. We lament the history of exclusion in the church. We rejoice in the wholeness that comes when we are all in relationship together.Affiliation: Presbyterian
Claimed by the Triune God, we worship only God and are called by the Holy Spirit to experience the boundary breaking love of Christ in our life together, in the heart of Asheville, and in the whole world.
This mission statement is our interpretation of the mission of God, and God’s commission to us. In this statement we name who we are as a community. These are the beliefs that define our life and ministry together.
- WHO WE ARE: Our deepest identity as human beings and as a church is that we are claimed by the Triune God.
- WHY WE’RE HERE: The core purpose of human life, individually and corporately, is to worship God and God alone.
- WHAT WE DO: We share the boundary breaking love of Jesus Christ with one another and with our neighbors near and far.
