About Us

Church Mission Statement

Our mission is to welcome and affirm all people as God’s beloved children, and to create kinship for those who seek a relationship with Jesus Christ. To that end, we are called to provide a spiritual home for the worship of God, to study and interpret the scripture, be guided by the Holy Spirit, and nurture a faith family. With kindness and genuine caring, we strive to minister to each other and our neighbors as we support the mission and ministry of the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Youth Mission Statement

It is our mission at FPCQ to lead the youth of our church and the Quincy area into a loving relationship with Christ and others. We want to offer a warm, welcoming, and inclusive atmosphere where our youth feel loved and at home. If you don’t have a youth program you are involved in, join us!

Equip youth to have a firm foundation

  • Study scripture and learn what Jesus would have us do, “the golden rule”
  • Welcome others and be kind
  • Have a safe space – a home

Church History

In the early 1800s, Presbyterian pioneers from the Carolinas and Georgia moved into the area that came to be known as Quincy. They gathered for worship and, in 1828, built a church four miles north of Quincy that they called Philadelphia.

In 1833, the Reverend Mr. Daniel Baker organized the First Presbyterian Church in the village of Quincy. Eight men were ordained to serve as ruling elders. After a slow start, the church was reorganized in 1838, and new elders and deacons were elected.

Church History
The first house of worship at our present location, on the corner of King and Madison streets, was built in 1845 and stood for 78 years. In 1923, a new church building was constructed to meet the growing worship and educational needs of the congregation and the community. The sanctuary we use today is that same structure; however, it was remodeled and rededicated in 1969.

The historic Quincy Academy building, located on the corner of King and Adams streets, was acquired in the late 1980s and serves as our Community Outreach Building. It currently houses our Clothes Closet and a meeting place for Scouts.

In 2006, a large field and warehouse adjacent to the existing property were gifted to the church. Volunteers planted trees and sod, and it is now used for recreation and church activities.
