Gospel-Driven and Christ Centered,
First Presbyterian Church exists to worship God and to equip the saints for the work of the ministry in Indianola and the world. 



The Apostle Paul tells us in Romans 10:17 that “faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” Since the word of Christ is the mode by which mankind comes to saving faith, First Presbyterian Church of Indianola is committed to extending the kingdom of God through the preaching of the infallible Word of God. As members we strive to glorify God by prayer, evangelism and through deeds of love and compassion.



We confess our faith through the classic statements of Presbyterian and Reformed theology found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Westminster Larger Catechism, and the Westminster Shorter Catechism. We believe that these documents are an excellent summary of the system of doctrine found in the Bible.



The Presbyterian Church in Indianola was formed in 1887. For 125 years it has been our goal to offer warm and reverent worship to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The history of First Presbyterian is not made primarily from our offering to God, but rather his goodness to us. We are a congregation that has been carried through denominational changes, wars, droughts and floods. It is with thankful hearts that we look back on the steadfast love of the Lord over these many years. As we move forward we will again seek his mighty hand to lead us to be the men and women that he has called us to be. United to Christ, we move forward with thanks for his mercy and hope for the continued work of his Holy Spirit.
