First Presbyterian Church

Hello and Welcome

As part of the body of Christ, the First Presbyterian Church of Fernandina Beach is called together to worship God, to nurture one another, to discover together where God is leading us; to plan effectively how to witness to our faith; and to teach and carry out this ministry and mission of Jesus Christ to our best ability.  Our outreach is to our families, our church, our community, and to all the world.
