First Presbyterian Church of Colorado Springs was founded by Rev. Sheldon Jackson on August 17, 1872. For more than 143 years, First Pres has been a beacon of hope in this community. As we have since our founding, we remain committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the community and serving as a light on the corner of Bijou and Nevada streets in the heart of downtown Colorado Springs.
Our vision is To Prepare All Generations To Impact Lives For Christ. To learn more about our vision and how we're committed to living it out, please visit the Our Vision page under this tab.
