First Presbyterian Church of Orlando

First Presbyterian Church of Orlando has been in the heart of the City Beautiful for over 135 years, serving, teaching, and shaping lives. Our church family has seen it all: trains cut through Florida’s jungle, miles of orange groves, the opening of Disney World, and now the advent of SunRail (back to trains!). Things may change, but the Word of God endures forever.

We are a downtown church in a growing city, united by our covenant relationship with God and one another. We love Jesus, and are committed to sharing his love with others, and humbly serving the city of Orlando and beyond.
