We, the members of First Presbyterian Church of Inglewood, invite you, our friends and neighbors, to join us in worship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We rely on God to bring you and us together. Founded in 1890, First Presbyterian is committed to fellowship with Christ and our richly diverse community.

In Jesus’ death and resurrection, God has graciously and lovingly acted on our behalf. This reconciliation makes us want to tell the whole world about our good news. Christ’s life reveals what life is when the will of God is shown in human flesh. Accepting this grace makes our lives more fruitful so that we can share God’s love, peace, and justice with our neighbors.

Our guidance and nourishment come from the Bible. We treasure God’s words of forgiveness, and we work to heal the hurts that separate people from God and from each other. We believe in the sanctity and unity of all people, from every race and culture. Hope from the Bible and the preached Word of God moves us to reach out from the sanctuary to create a more just and loving society and to befriend our brothers and sisters who are lonely and needy.
