OUR HERITAGE

We are a congregation of Salem Presbytery, part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). To learn more about Presbyterian beliefs, click here

First Presbyterian Church of Mocksville traces its history back to 1767, when a group of Presbyterians in "the Forks of the Yadkin" petitioned the Synod of Philadelphia and New York for a supply minister.

First known as Joppa Church (a Biblical name meaning beautiful), it met in a log building and later in a frame structure at the site of what is now Joppa Cemetery on Yadkinville Road.

About 1834, the church moved to Mocksville. It settled on the present site in 1840. The name was changed in 1868, and the current sanctuary was constructed in 1905. We recently celebrated our 250th Anniversary -- click here to read about it!

We have a lot of history, but no cobwebs! Join us for worship and fellowship on Sunday mornings!
