About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

To Our Guests


We believe we are living in transformative times, and that our call to bring people into relationship with Jesus is actually more important than ever. As a church community, we are committed to the person of Jesus Christ, and we base our teaching on the revealed Word of God. We believe we are called to encourage all people to place their trust in Christ Jesus, that He might offer them His redemption, forgiveness, and life everlasting. As our Pastor says, the whole reason behind Christ’s birth, ministry, death, and resurrection is to make people Free, Whole, and Intimate with God the Father.

Jesus said “Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst.” (John 4:14) We hope and trust that you will find sufficient water in the teaching we offer to continually quench your thirst. We also hope that you find the time you spend with us inspiring, meaningful, challenging, and more than a little fun.

In Christ Jesus, who makes all things new and through whom abundant life is realized.

Where we come from

First Presbyterian Church of Santa Clara was formed in 1958, breaking ground in 1959. The church has seen many changes in the world, in the local community, and within the organization over the last several decades. Throughout these chapters, we have remained committed to the Lordship of Christ and His restorative ministry. We are a warm, loving, Christ-centered, Bible-based Church community of members who are actively engaged in service, good stewardship, and personal growth to be Free, Whole, and Intimate with God.

Where we're headed

Our mission is to expand our church as a home for more Silicon Valley residents to have ever-deepening, transforming relationships with Christ. The fundamental need for meaningful, life-giving relationships has never been greater. We look forward to co-creating with God a safe, nurturing, Christ-centered haven for all who seek Him.
