Welcome to the movement of FirstPres !

FirstPres is a network of missional communities (churches) focused on the redemption and transformation of our lives, families, neighborhoods, city, and country through a deepening relationship with Jesus.

We recently opened a warming shelter for the East Bay!

Missional Community = “a community of God’s people that organizes its life around its real purpose – being an agent of God’s mission in the world”
– Alan Hirsch


We are driven in our life together by God’s amazing love for us, our love for Him and our love for the world around us.

We are driven forward by God and it is Him alone we follow.

We are driven by the privilege that we have been given to participate in the Mission of God to care for the needs of the sick, poor, and lonely; to free people from sin, suffering, and oppression, and to establish Christ’s just rule in the world.


The mission of God in Christ gives shape and substance to the life and work of the Church. In Christ, the Church participates in God’s mission for the transformation of creation and humanity by proclaiming to all people the good news of God’s love, offering to all people the grace of God at font and table, and calling all people to discipleship in Christ. Human beings have no higher goal in life than to glorify and enjoy God now and forever, living in covenant fellowship with God and participating in God’s mission.

The Church is sent to be Christ’s faithful evangelist: making disciples of all nations in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; sharing with others a deep life of worship, prayer, fellowship, and service; and participating in God’s mission to care for the needs of the sick, poor, and lonely; to free people from sin, suffering, and oppression; and to establish Christ’s just, loving, and peaceable rule in the world.
