At First Christian Church, we are urgent with the gospel and patient with people.
Aggressively graceful --- the gospel is our main thing and we will go to our graves proclaiming the truth of King Jesus and his love for all who call him Friend. Hope was born in Bethlehem 2000 years ago and everyone will meet him in judgment. Our prayer is that as a church we help make that day an embrace of love from our father.
Unashamedly biblical --- God's Word is our compass, guiding our every move. Regardless of the context or cultural change around us, God's word is our anchor and what holds us on still in the storm and the rudder that guides wherever the Holy Spirit sends us.
Passionately caring --- Superficial lives are most often a waste. We are filled with joy only found in relationship with Jesus and his image bearers. This makes us care more about others than ourselves and embrace each breath as a gift from our creator.
