“The mission of First Presbyterian Church is to be a joyful community of faith in which persons are nurtured, challenged, and comforted, and through which Christ takes form in this community and the world at large.”

Our Vision


"First Presbyterian Church, Henderson, NC, is a community of faith and hope in Christ, inviting all people into fellowship, worship, learning, and ministry. Our grateful response to God’s love and grace is to work together to discover our neighbors’ needs and to help fulfill those needs by sharing our time, talents, financial and physical resources.”


“...for I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 
I was naked and you gave me clothing,
I was sick and you took care of me,
I was in prison and you visited me.”
