About Our Church
First Presbyterian Church is an inclusive family of faith. Jesus taught us to love one another and we work harder at love than right doctrine. We are in the Reformed family of churches with an emphasis on the grace of God. We aren’t trying to work our way into heaven. We are experiencing forgiveness and love right here, right now, with each other. This is the gift of God that Jesus shared with us. The history of this amazing grace is recorded in the Bible which is our sacred history.
You will find the folks in our church friendly and eager to support you. Our worship, study, service, and fellowship opportunities are intended to help us grow, together and individually, as we live this ongoing grace.
We hope you will join us often as we try to glorify God through our love for one another and make the presence of Christ real to the people of the Bandon area.
