About Us

We are men and women, young and older, life long Presbyterians and newcomers to this Church.  Some of us have come from other faith traditions.  Some of us are still members of other churches but are worshipping here as we seek to discern where God wants us to be.

 

We are a community of people seeking to be faithful to our baptismal promise to continue in the Apostle’s teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers.  We also take to heart our baptismal obligation to seek and serve Christ and all people and to respect the dignity of every human being.

 

First Presbyterian Church is a Christian community in Reidsville, North Carolina.  We are a member of the Salem Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church (USA).
