Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

First Church wants to bring the Gospel of Jesus to everyone, near and far. This is accomplished through missionaries, local missions, and mission organizations that join together to be a part of the Great Commission! Through prayer, giving, and serving you can be apart of the missions at First Church to help spread the Gospel.
