Our Vision:

First Presbyterian Church exists to be a Christ-exalting, city-center church committed to fulfilling the Great Commission in Chattanooga, North America, and around the world, to the glory of the Triune God.

Our Purpose:

First and foremost, we gather on the Lord’s Day (Sunday) for public worship. Scripture declares that corporate, public worship is the center of the church’s life. (Ex 19:1-25; Luke 4:16, 24:13-32; Acts 20:7; 1 Cor 16:2; Rev 4-5)

We grow spiritually through Sunday School, small groups, Bible studies, prayer meetings, and one on one discipleship for all ages and stages of our church family. (Deut 6:6-8; Eph 4:13; Heb 5:14)
We take the gospel with outward facing evangelism to our homes by discipling households and practicing Biblical hospitality; to our city and nation by proclaiming the gospel, planting churches, and acts of service to a diverse spectrum of people and needs; and to the world through a dynamic world missions program and key global partnerships. (Matt 28:18-20; Rom 12:13)
