Called to make fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ — inwardly strong and outwardly focused.Mission Statement
First Presbyterian Church is placed at a unique nexus in the city of Tulsa, less than a mile from communities with both incredible wealth and incredible need. Founded in 1885, it was the very first organized Church in the city. The history of “First Church” is rich, and its roots are deep, but our story is also alive and evolving — welcoming many new faces, relationships and experiences every year. We’re here to bring glory to God, grow together, and serve our larger community in Tulsa and around the world.
Who needs Church?
What does it feel like here?
The global Church shares the same gospel message but speaks with different “accents.” At First Presbyterian Church, you will encounter multiple worship styles that are neither as traditional nor formal as the liturgies you might find at a Catholic or Lutheran Church, nor are they as modern as you might expect from a non-denominational concert-style Church. Each expression of the Body of Christ is unique, even within the same denomination, so we hope you will come and experience our community for yourself.
What do we believe?
Who leads the church?
Everything we do at First Presbyterian Church is prayerfully planned according to our best understanding of God’s will, which is recorded in the Bible. We believe God also calls people to a variety of leadership roles within the Church, as defined in the Presbyterian tradition... pastors, elders, deacons, trustees, and a dedicated church staff.
