In 1843, eight Presbyterians gathered at a house on Main Street in Spartanburg. After signing a covenant binding them together as a church, they adjourned for preaching and a celebration of the Lord's Supper. This was the beginning of First Presbyterian Church Spartanburg, which was the very first Presbyterian church to open its doors in our town.
Today, First Pres is a vibrant place of faith and worship that continues to transform its members, the Spartanburg community, and the world. By embracing the traditions of our past, we are excited about our future journey as a church, and we will faithfully follow where God leads.
