Purpose and Vision

Our purpose at First Church is to invite all people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, growing together in love and service to God and neighbor.


When we adopted this purpose, we committed to view all our work and ministry through this lens. You’ll find this purpose statement printed on the cover of all our bulletins, newsletters, and committee meeting agendas, and fixed to the wall of our Atrium. We aim for all that we do to be shaped by this guiding purpose which we believe expresses God’s heart and mission. We invite you to join us.
