First Presbyterian Church of Norway
First Presbyterian Church of Norway is a new church plant located in Stavanger, Norway. We are a fellowship of Norwegians and Internationals who love God and have a heart for Reformed theology and worship. Services are in English. We exist to see, savor and share the glory of God in the gospel of Christ Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit. FPCN is a mission church of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA)— an evangelical denomination that is "faithful to the Scriptures, true to the Reformed faith, and obedient to the Great Commission." If you are looking for a church that preaches Christ in the context of meaningful, gospel-centered community, then you are in the right place!
Our passion is Christ-centered preaching, worship, community and mission for the glory of God and the joy of God's people.
For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.
