About Our Church

First Presbyterian at Night

Westfield Presbyterian Church proudly but humbly bears the tradition of being the oldest organized church in Chautauqua County, New York and the eldest sister of all churches in the Presbytery of Western New York.

 

Officially organized in 1808 by the Rev. John Lindsay, the church was re-organized in 1817, with seven original members and forty-five others becoming "The Westfield Church" by the decision of the Presbytery.

 

 

Who We Are

The members and friends of the First Presbyterian Church of Westfield, NY welcome all persons, regardless of ethnic heritage, religious backgrounds, etc.

  • We believe that each person is unique and valuable.
  • We believe that each person is on a spiritual journey, and that each of us is at a different stage of that journey.
  • We believe that small changes can make a big difference, as we lend our service to our community, and minister to those in need.
  • We believe in supporting families as they grow within the warm environment of the church.

About the Presbyterian ChurchGod comes to us in free and undeserved favor in the person of Jesus Christ who lived, died, and rose for us that we might belong to God and serve Christ in the world. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world and in seeking thoughtful solutions to the challenges of our time.

Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal and abundant life in him. As Christ’s disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Christ’s faithful disciples in the world.

 

Our Goals

At the First Presbyterian, our goal is to glorify Christ by building strong, united families equipped for His service. We encourage our families to learn, worship, fellowship and serve together.

No matter how or where we serve Jesus Christ, the people of our congregaton are focused on joyfully doing God’s work. We live out our call to mission and ministry by engaging in ministry with the poor, combating diseases of poverty by improving health globally, creating new places for new people and renewing existing congregations, and developing principled Christian leaders.
