Our Mission


First Presbyterian Church New Haven is a worshiping community of Christian believers dedicated to following Jesus Christ in a just and compassionate ministry.

We warmly welcome the full diversity of God’s family in all our races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, nationalities or ethnicities, economic situations, and abilities.

In a restless world, remembering and practicing hope is essential.  One way we can do this is by rooting ourselves deep in our faith story.

Over the course of the fall season, we will explore the Book of Genesis – returning to the stories of our foundations.  These stories about God’s creation and our faith-bearing ancestors still speak to us today, informing our faith in relevant and meaningful ways.

All that the church is and does is rooted in its worship. We gather as a community of faith in response to God’s call on Sunday mornings to praise God with joy and to profess our witness to the life of Jesus Christ.

For many people the first time walking into a new church can be a daunting experience: full of both promise and uncertainty. Everyone who passes through First Presbyterian’s doors is welcome, regardless of religious background or church experience.
