What We Believe

Where God's House is a Home for All

We are a family nurtured by God through worship, fellowship, Christian education and spiritual growth. We are called by God to use our gifts, talents and love to guide and support one another as we live as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our History

The UPC, Flanders family is the product of the 1959 merger of the former Mt. Olive and Flanders Presbyterian churches. We have been at our current location on Drakesdale Road since 1983.


We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA), a church body tracing its roots to the Reformation in 16th century Europe. We Presbyterians identify ourselves as “Reformed and always being reformed” under the Word of God, meaning we cherish the heritage of our tradition but are always open to God’s ongoing work among us. The 1959 merger of the First Presbyterian Church Flanders and the Mt. Olive Presbyterian Church formed the United Presbyterian Church, Flanders, and the name and the concept of UNITED remains important to us today.
