Welcome

We Are – First Presbyterian Church from fpcsantafe on Vimeo.

 

We welcome you to come to our church, to participate in activities, and to get to know who we are.

We are a church with a rich legacy of being involved in the community and the world, facing issues head-on, from homelessness, hunger, violence and poverty, to addressing their underlying reasons. We continue this legacy today.

We are an inclusive church where all are welcome, no matter what. No exceptions.

We are a church that is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2017, the oldest Protestant congregation in New Mexico and Arizona.

We are a church that takes scripture seriously, not literally, and seeks its wisdom and guidance daily.

We are a church that loves great music.

We are a church that seeks to remain relevant to new generations and thrive in a challenging culture.

We are a church that hopes to always re‑form its life around the life and ministry and teachings of Jesus Christ.

By doing so, we can be a church that has the capacity to heal the world as we work to care for our environment, confront injustice, work for peaceful solutions, and care for those in need.

We are a church that enjoys being with one another and welcoming new people into our midst.
