Church isn’t something we go to, church is something we are. We are followers of Jesus who strive to live out our faith through worship, study, and service.
We’re an engaged community of faith at work throughout Charlotte and around the world. With groups of people putting their collective gifts to good use, our congregation of over 4,500 members feels close and intimate.
We are committed to affirming the dignity and humanity of every person, and strive to create a welcoming environment for all God’s children.
Claimed by the Love of God in Jesus Christ,
we are called into this community of faith;
living out our love for God
in worship, study, and service;
loving and supporting one another
as we join God’s transforming work
in our city and in the world.
years in ministry
Nearly a century ago, a small group of neighbors in the Myers Park neighborhood knocked on doors to invite residents to join a new congregation. They organized themselves into existence and petitioned the Presbytery to issue a charter to establish Myers Park Presbyterian Church in 1926. Today, it is one of the largest churches in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). This church has united as disciples of Christ; the greater the challenge, the better.
Through God, MPPC has supported the creation of Selwyn Avenue and Trinity Presbyterian Churches, helped incubate The Learning Collaborative, launched Crossroads Corporation, and affirmed the work of countless organizations in Charlotte and around the world. We put our feet to our faith and take pride in the things we do with God’s help.
