Salt and Light

We Serve Our Living God through:

Worship - FCW offers a blended worship, combining the traditional elements of Prayer, Singing/Praising, Reading of the Word, Preaching of the Word, as well as Sacraments and other oaths/vows, along with contemporary Praise Songs, a Season of Prayer, Missionary & Special Ministry Moments, and other "life-of-the-fellowship" moments, including testimonies and offerings of special music.

Fellowship - FCW focuses on the abundant life of the believer through fellowship luncheons, small groups, seminars/Learning How classes, corporate prayer times, Women's & Men's ministry events & studies, Conferences and Live-stream Events, and group field trips to places of interest to our faith.

Discipleship - FCW seeks to reproduce in our efforts to meet the Great Commission, grow the community of believers through Sunday School, Teaching & Preaching ministry, Small Groups, EE training and outreach, and ministry involvement with Kingdom-oriented services to the community, and leveraging technology to better communicate the Gospel to members, our community, and the world.

Stewardship - FCW is growing in its stewardship through Living Waters Counseling Center, maintaining our God provided facilities, a program of developing our Missionary outreach from Tamarac to the ends of the earth, allowing our facility to be used by other ministries to serve the Gospel and the needs of our Christian community, as well as outreach to the civic community and organizations.

First Church West is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America. We are a relatively new denomination formed in 1973 that is "faithful to the Scriptures, true to the reformed faith, and obedient to the Great Commission." Our church is based on the foundation of Holy Scripture, the Westminster Confession of Faith, and our Book of Church Order.
