June 6, 1883: Mineola Village Church is founded at what is now First and Main Streets.

I was glad when they said to me, "Let us go to the house of the LORD!"

Known as a church for the whole community, First Presbyterian has been proclaiming the news of our awesome God in times of trials and times of happiness. A place for babies, children and youth. A place for singles, couples, and extended families. A place for weddings, baptisms, confirmations, and funerals. A place to experience the wonder of close fellowship in worship, prayer, study, service, outreach, and mutual encouragement. A place where the Gospel is central - where Jesus is First and Main!

This congregation loves God - Who had made each one, sustains each one, and seeks relation with each one. The foundation of our faith is the saving work of Jesus, who rescues believers from death and restores them to life. Without this redemptive work, we have no hope for meaning, no hope for the future, and certainty of an afterlife separated from the greatest Good.
