First Presbyterian Church of Lumberton


We are united through Christ

          At First Presbyterian Church we believe in one God- Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that " Jesus came so we can have life and have it abundantly." We believe, "That NOTHING can seperate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:39

As Christians we believe in the Reformed Tenets of our Faith as put forth by the early church fathers:

  • Sola Scriptura- "By Scripture Alone", God's word triumphs tradition.
  • Sola Fide- "By Faith Alone." Good works are not a means to salvation.
  • Sola Grata- "By Grace Alone." It is only by the goodness of God we have been redeemed.

We also look to our denomination; Presbyterian Church (USA), to proclaim what we believe is at the core of being a Church of Jesus Christ...

  • The proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind
  • The shelter, nurture and spiritual fellowship of the children of God
  • The maintenance of divine worship
  • The preservation of social righteousness
  • The exhibition of the kingdom of heaven to the world

And at First Presbyterian we are firm in our belief that:

  • Everybody's welcome
  • Nobody's perfect
  • Anything's possible
