Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Sylva, North Carolina!
We hope you will take a few minutes to explore our website and see what we are all about, here in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Our vision is to know Christ and make him known. Our mission is to make disciples and equip them for ministry. In everything we do, we make it our aim to point all people and all ministries to Jesus Christ. We invite you to join us for weekly worship, special events, and services throughout the year.
Jesus Christ is at the center of all church life at First Presbyterian Church. Worship, teaching, service, fellowship, and evangelism grow out of our joyful response to what God the Father has done in sending his Son to be our Savior and Lord. We seek to know, understand, and live under the authority of God’s Word believing Scripture is to be learned and lived out in all areas of life is the source of truth for our maturing walk with God. We seek to demonstrate God’s love in our community by serving the hurting and needy and to be a church home where people of all ages and backgrounds can “come as they are” and feel welcomed, develop deep and lasting friendships, and find a place to serve and grow spiritually. True Christian community creates opportunities for people from all walks of life to serve, learn, and grow together.
