Our Purpose

OUR VISION IS SIMPLE.


FIRST CHURCH OF GOD IS A PLACE TO CONNECT

to God | to each other | to our community


CONNECT to God

We're here to build bridges of faith that extend over chasms of doubt and unbelief, and take that to the highways and byways of life so people can meet and get to know Jesus. The primary bridge-building tool to Christ is our Sunday services, enabling people to express their love for God through worship.


CONNECT to each other.

God created us to be in community, so we encourage personal growth through groups that bridge the gap from individuals to other people. Our primary tool for personal spiritual growth most often happens in small groups whether that group is a class, a life group or a team serving in ministry -- where people become connected with a common purpose.


CONNECT to our community.

Jesus' message is clear: He wants us to go into the world and make disciples. "The world" is simply those around us with needs not yet met. It's people in our community and people in the far corners of the globe. We build these bridges through ministry teams, helping people engage in teams to live out their faith. Because when we emulate Jesus, people are naturally drawn to Him.
