Who We Are

Since 1956, Gulf Shores First Presbyterian Church has been serving the beautiful beach community of Gulf Shores, Alabama. A member of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), we are an inclusive community of people who believe that loving God, growing in faith and sharing Christ's love is both our calling and our joy. We are a welcoming and warm place where you will find open arms, minds and hearts, authenticity and love.


In addition to sharing the love of Christ, Gulf Shores First Presbyterian Church is dedicated to helping our local community. We are committed to demonstrating the love of Christ through our work with the Christian Service Center, local schools, the Gulf Coast Arts Alliance and many others. To learn more about our community activities, please contact Pam Winstead, Church Life Director, at (251) 978-8130.

An Alternative


Ready for an alternative to church as usual?

Ready to be engaged:

- with the issues of our day

- with people in our community

- with intentional spiritual practices?


Not with judgment, fear, and condemnation,

Not with sentimentality and blind optimism.


But, with hearts open to God

who is Spirit,

who is the ground of our being,

who is the depth dimension in life,

who, ultimately, is Love.


As we see in the teaching and life of Jesus,

we live into hope and joy,

trusting that we live in God,

who calls us daughters and sons,

and invites us,

and everyone else,

to share a common table.


Welcome to an inclusive community.
