Our Vision

We are a community of individuals on a journey seeking an ever deepening relationship with God as revealed through the Word, life of Christ, Christian traditions, lives of others, and direct inspiration.  Continuing First Presbyterian Church Martinsville's 175 year tradition, we invite, welcome and affirm all people, offering love and spiritual nourishment and reach out beyond our walls to share God's love through mission and service.
