First Presbyterian Church of Dunn is a Christ-centered family of faith serving the greater Dunn area since 1889. We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and a member of Coastal Carolina Presbytery, which means we practice our faith in the reformed tradition of Christianity. Our aim is to deepen our love for God and our love for our neighbors in response to God's love for us in Jesus Christ.
When asked which commandment was the first and greatest, Jesus said "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, your mind and your strength."
In a world full of cheap thrills and distractions, where too often fears and anxieties come to drive us, we work together to deepen our love for God. We aim to refocus our hearts and lives on the one who created us, encouraging one another to live by trusting and relying on the hope of God's promises.
LOVING OUR NEIGHBORS
Jesus also said there was a second commandment which was just like the first, "Love your neighbor as yourself."
In a world where people are ever more divided, always pitted against one another and leaving us more and more isolated, we work together to deepen our love for neighbors. We aim to build relationships and community, working to offer what we have to offer to meet the needs of others.
BECAUSE CHRIST LOVES US FIRST
Jesus was not just a teacher who offered great advice. He also proved to the world that God's steadfast love endures forever. Even though he was betrayed, denied and rejected by this world cross, he rose again and claimed the world as God's own. And in the same way, even though we may betray, deny and reject him in our own ways in our own lives, there's nothing that can separate us from the love of God.
Therefore, we do not teach and encourage one another to love God and neighbor because there is something in it for us, or because have something to earn or prove, but rather in grateful response to the fact that in Jesus Christ, God has loved us first.
