First United Presbyterian Church located in Pekin, Illinois, is a Christ-focused community of faith. We commit ourselves to becoming a worshiping, welcoming, witnessing congregation - one that is devoted to sharing the good news of God's redeeming love, and serving our Savior through all we are and all we do.
In His wisdom and by His grace, Jesus Christ has called us to be a vital, living and growing part of his church. Our Living Lord is the source of our life and our reason for being, and it is only as we are united to him that we become all that He wants us to be.
