If you are visiting, we will not try to embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out a church and “be anonymous” for a while—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the atmosphere, and see if FPC is for you.
We believe that God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to die for us in order that we might have a personal relationship with Him and someday spend eternity in heaven. We believe in the Bible as God's holy message to us and that Jesus is the only way for eternal salvation.
Jesus is God, and He left the safety of heaven about 2,000 years ago. He entered our world and breathed our air and shared our pain and walked in our shoes. He was fully God and fully man. This does not mean that Jesus had the capacity to sin; this could not and would not happen. Yet He was a man. He was in a human body. He felt human emotion. He faced physical limitations. He felt real pain. It was actual blood coursing through His veins. Yet He was deity. He was God in human form.
FPC is overseen by Elders, a group of people who have been called by God and elected by the congregation for a 3-year term. Elders make most of the decisions involving the life of the church family. They are charged with the spiritual leadership, teaching, protection, care, and discipline of the congregation.
The FPC Deacons serve our church by managing facility repair, keeping track of finances, and organizing fellowship activities. They also serve the South Charleston Community throug the Food Pantry and other outreaches.
