Mission Statement

First Presbyterian Church of Sugar Land is a welcoming community called by God to foster the spiritual development of its members.  Through worship, the sacraments, prayer, preaching, teaching and fellowship, we are equipped to share His grace with each other, the community and the world by witnessing to the risen Christ in our everyday lives.  By serving the spiritual needs of our community and ministering to those who are in need, we follow the command of the Great Commission.  By building closer relationships with the Savior, each other and our neighbors near and far we insure that all may glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

First Presbyterian Church of Sugar Land (FPCSL) welcomes you and is delighted about your desire to find out more about our church family.  For almost 100 years, FPCSL has served the heart of old Sugar Land.  We are a diverse and accepting small town church in the midst of a very big city.  We encourage you to learn about our heritage, our staff and leadership and our commitment to grow God’s church and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.  Go ahead, “test the waters” here at FPCSL.  We know you’ll enjoy your visit.  Come meet us, explore, learn and fellowship together in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who has made all this possible.  As one body, we strive to become more like what God made us to be.

We are a compassionate, caring fellowship called to bear witness to the Living God taking seriously the Great Commission to share Christ’s good news of hope, redemption and salvation with our community and the world.


In Sugar Land, we are primarily concerned with meeting the immediate living needs of our community.  We attempt to connect our community and families to the Lord by caring for homeless families with children through Fort Bend Family Promise and providing for the basic needs of the less fortunate through East Fort Bend Human Needs Ministry.  We are anxious for and about new beginnings and new directions.  Holding fast to our Presbyterian heritage, we are challenged to grow spiritually and in numbers as we find new ways to share the good news of the gospel in a secular world, making church and the Bible relevant, and reaching out to all those who thirst, including those who are younger or of different races and cultures.  We are challenged to develop new and varied ways of communicating and connecting through meaningful worship for all ages, Christian education, and a dynamic youth ministry.

We are hungry to hear the Word of God in preaching and teaching; to be energized in worship and prayer so that we can grow spiritually; to be better equipped to serve as His disciples, and to lead others to Christ through the example of our daily lives.  We are committed to serving God and others within our church family and in our community in tangible and beneficial ways.  We are challenged to become better stewards of all that God has given us so that we can minister more effectively to the needs of a broken and hurting world.
