First Presbyterian Church is a community of Christian believers meeting in Waukegan, Illinois. We are imperfect people seeking to know God through His Son Jesus and seeking to make Jesus known to others.

First Presbyterian Church receives the Bible as God's trustworthy message, a message that demands our attention and addresses our deepest needs. We find the following key teachings within its pages:

  • God is the good and powerful creator of all things, including mankind.

  • Evil and guilt have separated mankind from God.

  • Jesus, the Son of God, died and returned to life to mend that separation.

  • Those who trust in Jesus are forgiven by God, have new life from God, and will spend eternity with Him.

  • Those who trust in Jesus should gather to encourage and teach each other.

We are part of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC), a Christian denomination committed to the truth and authority of the Bible.
