About First Presbyterian Church at Norristown

The First Presbyterian Church at Norristown exists to worship God through the proclamation of His word, through discipleship, and through service. We proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the evangelical tradition, and we encourage warm fellowship, loving one another through prayer, friendship, and practical help. We host and participate with the Coalition to Save Lives, the Norristown Literacy Council, and the Young Lives single parents ministry. To help fulfill the Great Commission we engage in a variety of domestic and foreign evangelical missions. Organized in 1819, First Presbyterian Church continues to this day to worship and serve the Lord from its historic corner of Airy and DeKalb Streets in Norristown, PA. Our pastor is Rev. Peter Martin. Our ministry is carried out by the entire congregation.

What We Believe

We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We proclaim the sovereignty of God Who created all things and sustains and guides all history and people according to His perfect will. His love is supremely expressed in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Who by sacrificial death and triumphant resurrection reconciles alienated human beings to God the Father. We proclaim this salvation to all people, inviting them to receive Jesus Christ as personal Savior from sin and to become members of God’s family. We are grateful for the work of the Holy Spirit Who makes Jesus Christ known, as He convicts of sin and judgment and leads into all truth. We look forward to the coming again of Jesus Christ in power and great glory at the end of this age of grace.

Meet the Pastor

Rev. Peter Martin, Senior Pastor

Rev. Peter Martin, his wife Tara, and two children, Kade and Willow
I became ordained and installed at First Presbyterian in June of 2015 and I am looking forward to serving this church and growing even more by the grace of God. I am blessed with a beautiful family - my wife Tara, and our wonderful children Kade and Willow - and a great congregational family here. I am looking forward to partnering with First Presbyterian to serve God and His ministry of grace and healing to this broken world.
