Who We Are

Located in northcentral Austin, in the heart of the Brentwood and Crestview communities, First Cumberland Presbyterian is a neighborhood church that welcomes new faces as well as longtime members. It’s a faith community where you won’t feel lost in the crowd — where folks will remember your name and you can find your place, whether it’s in the choir, in a pew, in Bible study or starting a youth ministry.
Most important, we hope you’ll find the love, joy and peace that only come from knowing Jesus Christ.
So join us — make First Cumberland Presbyterian your spiritual home. You are welcome here.
God's love is calling you!
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.”
Jesus invites you!
“I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die.”
What do I have to do?
“Then Jesus told his disciples, "If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life?”
If you are willing to start a personal relationship with Christ that He may live in you, repent, turn away from your sinful life, and turn to God.
Acknowledge with God that you are a sinner and that Jesus died upon the cross to pay the price of your sins.
Ask God to forgive you of your sin through the cleansing power of Jesus' blood.
Accept God's salvation and thank God for calling you, loving you and choosing you for a personal relationship.
