First Presbyterian is a welcoming, progressive church that believes all are welcome at God’s banquet table. As a church, we affirm an apostolic faith in Jesus Christ while honoring the diversity of each individual’s connection to the Divine. Come enjoy beautiful choral arrangements, melodic organ and piano music, and traditional liturgy in our lovely stained glass sanctuary.

Our church is liturgical: we find connection to Holiness by bringing our modern selves to ancient altars. At First Pres, we find newness, creativity, and life in the traditions of our ancestors. Our worship is informed by the rhythms and prayers passed down to us and which connect us to a global and eternal Body of Christ. 

First Presbyterian Church of Daytona Beach chooses to be inclusive to all God’s children, regardless of race, sex, age, or sexual orientation, and desires that all persons be included in the full life of the church including marriage, the sacraments (baptism and the Lord’s Supper), ordination and servanthood in all of its forms.
