What We Believe
Here’s a little about what we believe: First Presbyterian Church of Elkhart, Indiana is a Christian community of believers who trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We seek to find God’s leading in our individual lives, to grow in love and to serve God in each other's good company. We believe the Old and New Testaments of the Bible to be reliable witnesses to God's story in the past, and we study the scriptures to understand what God is doing in the present. We seek to be faithful and to be part of God’s purposes for the future.
For a fuller picture of what we believe, come worship with us or join a small group and get to know us better.
Inviting all to
grow in Christ,
and share Christ’s love.
