Our Purpose

Our Purpose

The purpose of the First Church of God is three-fold.

  • To EXHALT Christ - We are called to raise or to lift up the name of Jesus as the way to salvation, the Son of God and the Savior of the world. {John 3:14-18; John 12:32; 1 Corinthians 1:23-24}
  • To EVANGELIZE The Lost - We are called to spread the Gospel message to all of the world and make disciples of those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. {Matthew 28:18-20}
  • To EDIFY The Body - We are called to "build up" the Body of Christ through the discovery and exercising of the spiritual gifts placed in us by the Holy Spirit of God. {Ephesians 4:7-16}

At First Church, we do this in a number of ways.

We do this through our worship and praise, preaching and teaching, through Christian Education and fellowship with one another and other assemblies of faith.
