First Church wants to make a lasting difference in your life, in our community, and in the world. How do we go about that? By creating a church where broken lives are made whole through the power of Jesus Christ. That’s the driving vision behind everything we do.

We want to help you get to know God better and enable you to become who He’s created you to be. No matter where you are in life, we’ll help you figure out some next steps in your journey with Him. It could start with volunteering, participating in a discipleship class, taking some Bible studies, giving, or attending church regularly. Along the way, we hope to work with you to make our community a better place.
