More Than a Church
A Welcoming Christian Community
First Presbyterian Church in Manchester, Iowa is a vibrant, Christ-centered congregation.
Our mission is to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of each other and the community, to nurture a stronger relationship with Christ through worship, study, service, and fellowship, and to empower members to grow their faith and be equipped for living the Christian life in challenging times.
Our Vision, Our Mission, Our Calling
We are called to joyfully share the love of God and the good news of Jesus Christ through faithful worship, study, care, and service.
What We Believe
At the Heart of Everything We Do
We believe God is hard at work rescuing this world from sin and despair and that He's invited us to come and be a part of that work.
We believe God has brought us together because we are stronger together than we are apart and, in our togetherness, we believe we can show the world a pretty good image of what God's love is like.
We believe the Bible is our guide for who we were created to be as children of God. And we believe Jesus has saved us from a life of anxiety and despair and invited us into a life of joyful obedience to God.
