Get to Know Us

Founded in 1887, 1st Church has been a landmark and part of the fabric of Punta Gorda for generations. Located in the heart of the historic district, the church is a beacon of light to our community, reaching out to offer support and love to everyone we serve.

True to our beliefs, we are dedicated to the mission that surrounds us. Whether it is a mission in Africa or the person sleeping on a park bench, it is our desire for the light of Christ to shine in us and through us even during the most difficult times. The community we have created at 1st Church is dedicated to our mission, offering new life in Jesus Christ by seeking, shaping and sending disciples.

Come as you are and stay as long as you can. We’re all family here.
