Preaching the Word for God's Glory and Your Joy. Help us Plant Christ's Church.

Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Norway (FPCN). We exist to glorify God that Norwegians and internationals might enjoy him forever. FPCN is an international and evangelical church plant in Stavanger, Norway. Our congregation is a mission church of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), and we are looking for Christian brothers and sisters to help us plant Christ's church and bear witness to the gospel in Stavanger and beyond.

Our multinational community testifies to Christ's global kingdom mission as he redeems people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. We are privileged to stand alongside other evangelical churches in our community as a beacon of light in a world of darkness. Above all, we preach the Word of God and believe with our Lord Jesus Christ that "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God" (Matthew 5:4).

Services are in English.

Join with us in singing and proclaiming the gospel of our glorious God.

Meet Our Pastor


Rev. Matthew Stanghelle

Pastor Matt is a Minnesota native who has many family ties to Norway. He is married to Deborah, and they have four children. They consider it a great privilege to church plant in the land of Matt's forefathers. Matt is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 3:20-21
