What We Believe

 

First Pres is approaching the 150th anniversary of its life together. Throughout the generations, God has been faithful to this church in downtown Boulder. While the Core Values have been newly articulated, these same commitments have been the foundation of life and ministry of First Pres Boulder since the beginning:


Jesus Christ

 

He transforms lives as He is encountered in scripture and community.

 

Boulder
 

We pursue God’s heart for a flourishing city and beyond.

 

Youth

 

We follow Jesus’ example in inviting and discipling younger generations.

 

Prayer

 

God meets and shapes us as we submit to His Spirit.

 

Multi-Generational Community
 

We worship and serve together, side by side.

 
Leadership
 

We invest in emerging disciples for the next generation of gospel leaders here and around the world.


 
 

 

Our leadership

 

The life of First Presbyterian Church is enriched by the many different kinds of service offered by members. This represents an expression of Paul’s view of the church as the body of Christ, with each member contributing to the health of the whole. (I Corinthians 12)

Congregational leadership is an important area of service in the church. Each year, the congregation calls members who have been regular in worship, active in the life of the church, generous in support of our ministry, and faithful in their life and witness to the gospel, to serve as: trustee, elder or deacon.
