Our Mission

To glorify God as we share the hope, joy, and promise we are given through Jesus Christ. We believe that God is calling first Presbyterian Church to be a growing spiritual community in Central Nebraska by:

  • Proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ in worship, prayer, education, fellowship, and service; honoring the Presbyterian tradition while seeking new and creative ways to spread the good news

  • Inspiring and renewing people of faith for their individual service and leadership in the church and community

  • Teaching biblical truths that equip people of all ages and diverse circumstances for life in the world

  • Nurturing the spiritual friendships and fellowships that bind people and generations together

  • Reaching out to our community, nation, and world as a continuation of Jesus Christ’s ministry on earth.
