San Antonio Community Resource Directory
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.

Since then, the Children’s Center has adopted the mission to show the children, on a daily basis, aspects of Christian living and God’s love for each child through the teaching and example of the teachers, staff and members of the church staff.  It is because of the excellent staff and mission that the center has grown and become one of the best in San Antonio.
