About First Presbyterian Church

First Presbyterian Church, Villa Rica is a connectional church and part of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). We trace our roots back to the earliest reformers of the faith, Martin Luther, who was the first reformer (sharing his views publicly in 1517), followed by people like Andreas Karlstadt and Philip Melanchthon at Wittenberg.

We tend to think, rightly so, of the Reformers as people who recovered the main doctrines of the gospel and the five solas of the Reformation, but they did so by returning to the original sources. That is our continuous effort, to return to the original sources and meanings of God’s Word, the Bible.

In the context of such strong and traditional protestant roots, we also believe that worship should be a combination of hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs. God is the focus of our worship, and because of that you can trust that you and your family will hear The Truth of the Word of God, rather than man’s opinions or ideas from the latest fads of culture. Here, we seek one thing: God. Come find him with us!

History of First Presbyterian Church Villa Rica GA

The church was organized as Villa Rica Presbyterian Church in 1855. A white frame building was constructed on Candler Street in 1885 for worship. The building was moved to its current location in 1930 onto property donated by the family of Mr. W. B. Candler, founder of Coca Cola, who had served as Clerk of Session from 1888 to 1921. The structure was bricked, and a basement was added for Sunday School rooms. The mahogany pews, pulpit, and the stained glass windows were purchased from Old Wesley Memorial Church in Atlanta when it was torn down. The windows were made from a color formula that has been lost over time, making them irreplaceable antiques. The Candler home, which was situated behind the church building, served the church in many capacities before it was torn down in 1998 and replaced with a new fellowship building.   Edit
