The First Presbyterian Church of Mount Joy was organized on December first 1839, but began holding services in the Mount Joy vicinity as early as 1746. This church is a thoroughly evangelical church in the historic sense of that word and our basic purpose are to bring people to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, to build them in the Christian faith and life, and to enlarge missionary participation to the extent that all may come to hear of and believe in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior.
Mission Statement: Our purpose is to worship and serve God. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to reach out in Jesus' name to the community both near and far. Our faith in Jesus Christ inspires us to live in joyful service.
Vision Statement: Our Church will be a vibrant community of faith demonstrating the difference that faith in Jesus Christ can make in the lives of people by bringing them to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
