Welcome! Thank you for taking a moment to become better acquainted with First Missionary Church. Let us take just a few moments to share our hearts with you.
At First Missionary Church, we want people to know that the Christian life is not about the rules. It's not about trying harder. It's not about dotting all the "I's" and crossing all the "T's" so that we can somehow earn God's favor or make ourselves feel more secure in our relationship with Him.
It's not about living life to serve ourselves. It's not about living by the values and rules of our culture that encourages us to live to please ourselves. So, what is it about?
It's about Jesus. It's about how his life, his death, and his resurrection sets us free from the rules and the lies that we think keep us from God. It's about learning to worship wholeheartedly the God who loves us, and to intentionally grow in our relationship with Him.
It's about people. It's about the people who follow Jesus taking his message of life and hope beyond our walls to a broken and hurting world. It's about committing to connect authentically with people. It's about discovering how we can serve others creatively with our gifts and talents. It's about giving ourselves to reach people compassionately with the love of Christ.
Wherever you are on the journey to know God and walk as a follower of Jesus, we invite you to walk with us. If we can help you in any way along your journey, please don't hesitate to let us know.
Your friends in Christ,
First Missionary Church Staff
