No one is a stranger at First Pres. Here, we are all family, and we invite you to be a part of it.

We’re located in the heart of Berkeley, just steps away from Telegraph Avenue and UC Berkeley. In the midst of a world that is constantly changing, we have been faithfully worshiping here for over a century, and like the city we serve, our church has become more diverse, more inclusive, and more vibrant with each passing year.

While the world may want to put us into categories, we believe the Spirit defies these limitations. We are not an either-or church—we are a both-and church. We are a Jesus and a justice church. We care about scripture and about social impact. We seek to engage the heart, the soul, the body, and the mind.
