New to First Presbyterian Church ? Great! Start Here...
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Welcome! We’re so glad you’ve found your way to our website and are checking us out. We are a historic Presbyterian church that was founded in 1850 and moved into our current building in 1923. Though much has changed in Stockton and in the world since then, we believe Jesus continues to lead us today to love God, our neighbors, and our city. Our inclusive community is a mix of loving people from different backgrounds and stories coming together around our common faith in Jesus Christ. Whatever your church experience or your place on your faith journey, you will receive a warm welcome. Our worship style embraces the pattern of a more traditional liturgical structure to guide us through our worship, with creative and updated elements.
Our mission statement is :
As God’s family through Jesus Christ, we seek
-To know God through prayer, worship, and Bible study
-To be open to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit
-To share God’s love with each other, our community, and the world
