Welcome to First Presbyterian of Vicksburg
We’re so excited that you are considering FPC as your new church home.
Our mission statement is, “To Know Christ and Make Him Know, We value the Lordship of Jesus Christ, Biblical teaching and preaching, prayer, fellowship, worship and relationships. Please take a few moment to review the information on this website. You will find that our ministries are varied and exciting. God has a plan for you, and we have a community for you. You are welcome here!.
Sunday Service & Sunday School
With the availability of COVID vaccinations resulting in the easing of state and local health restrictions, we are able to make it easier to worship our Lord together in person. Your Session has approved the following changes to our worship procedures:
- We no longer require advance signups for participation in our worship services.
- We ask that you use a mask when it is not possible to distance at least six feet from others who are not members of your household, but you can remove your mask with proper physical distancing.
- Hand sanitation stations will continue to be available and their use encouraged.
- We will continue to offer podcast broadcasts of our services to enable worship by those who prefer to join us remotely.
God is our supreme protector. We praise Him for the spiritual and physical renewal we can now celebrate together.
No matter who you are, where you are from, where you are in your personal faith journey or past church experience, you are welcome and wanted at First Presbyterian Church.
God is good, all the time!

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV) Because He lives, All fear is gone. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27 (NIV) Because I know He holds the future. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) And life is worth the living just because He lives.“I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10 (NIV) We have the blessed assurance that no matter what we go through here on earth, He is always with us. Nothing can separate us from His love. We need not fear death, either, because we who have accepted His marvelous gift of salvation are promised abundant eternal life with Him. Life truly is worth the living, because He lives!
