First Presbyterian Church (Christian / Presbyterian)
Welcome to the newest, oldest, Presbyterian congregation in San Antonio! For 170 years FPC has been living to make Jesus visible here in center-city San Antonio and around the globe. We are a regional, Christ-centered, Biblically orthodox, missions-driven, disciple-making congregation that’s part of a brand new denomination: The Evangelical Covenant Order Of Presbyterians (ECO).
We major in vibrant worship (3 services each Sunday, plus special services all year long), Sunday school and small groups for all ages, a dynamic music ministry, and other ministries targeting all ages. We have a heart for the city, and for the world, which fuels a number of justice and mercy ministries in downtown SA, and launches a variety of mission teams around the world that seek to bring people to Christ while addressing their basic needs……linking the Great Commission (Matthew 28: 19-20) and the Great Commandment (Matthew 22: 37) in a holistic way. We believe that knowing Christ makes all the difference in the world…..now….and eternally.
Members of our congregation and ministry partners such as the SA Hope Center (formerly the Christian Hope Resource Center, or CHRC), Christian Assistance Ministries (CAM), Any Woman Can, and others provide opportunities toward holistic transformation for neighbors who are struggling. Mentors from SA Hope Center are available to meet with guests to develop a long-term proactive plan to become more self-sufficient. Any Woman Can supports women in their decisions through a variety of confidential services including: • Medically accurate information • Counseling Opportunities • Fellowship • Pregnancy Services • STD Testing

Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in participating congregations. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting. Male and female Stephen Ministers are paired with male and female Care Receivers respectively. Confidentiality is key to the ministry. Stephen Ministers receive support through supervision, continuing education, and coaching on a monthly basis.
Stephen Ministry is open to the public; church membership is not required.
