"Christ has no body now but yours. No hands, no feet on earth but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses all the world."
—Teresa of Ávila —
As disciples of Christ at FPCA, we seek to share the boundary-breaking love of God in all our ministries. And we believe we have a better chance of following Jesus together rather than by going it alone! Together - through hands-on ministries, financial support, as well as advocacy - we seek to share the boundary breaking love here in downtown Asheville, in Western NC, and throughout the world!
As a member of the Presbytery of WNC, we participate in mission partnerships in Guatemala, Malawi, and Madagascar. We have partnered with the Ebenezer Presbyterian Church in La Blanca, Guatemala for almost a decade, providing scholarship support to hundreds of young people. We have gained great friendship and encouragement through the hospitality received on our visits to La Blanca.
Believing that God is active beyond the walls of the church, we seek to partner with agencies that promote justice and reconciliation beginning here in Asheville and throughout Western North Carolina.
Through our fifty year partnership with the Child Care Center, we have sought to provide quality care for thousands of children and families.
