Who We Are
(who God is calling us to be and what God is calling us to do)
“to develop devoted followers of jesus christ who celebrate, grow, and serve for the glory of god.”
(how God is calling us to do His work)
Celebrate the gospel
Remembering the good news of what Jesus has accomplished—the gospel—fuels our joy in God, focuses our eyes on God, shapes our hearts like God's, and moves our feet for God. The gospel is essential and at the heart of everything we do at First Family. It's worth celebrating! You'll see this evidenced at all our gatherings, but especially at our Sunday services. Each message preached at FFC comes back to Christ and the gospel. You'll find that the gospel is not just the ABCs of Christianity, it's the whole alphabet.
Grow in community
Connecting with the local community of believers in Christ sustains life change, fosters accountability, and is essential to spiritual growth. Small Groups are the family in First Family Church. This is the primary avenue for a deeper connection to this local body. It is in a small group that you form the meaningful relationships needed during times of celebration and crisis, as well as the accountability necessary for sustained life change. In addition, participating in a Small Group is one of the best tools for outreach and evangelism. Truly, the community of First Family is best seen and felt in a small group. However, other equipping classes exist, and can help you “learn the ropes” of small groups at First Family.
Serve the mission
Using the gifts God gives us to further his mission builds our spiritual muscles, broadens our outreach, and molds us into the image of Christ. That’s why First Family encourages everyone to use his or her spiritual gift each week for the good of the body of Christ. From the front door greeter and the tech team member to the elementary class teacher and the youth leader, every area of serving is valuable. Find out more about serving and get plugged in here.
