The mission of First Church is to help others Know, Love, Serve & Share Jesus. And that doesn’t stop here in the 918. We do our very best to take the gospel past state lines, and beyond national borders. Global outreach is now and always has been an integral part of our identity, as we are committed to being a Kingdom-minded church by honoring the great commission as laid out in the Bible.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” -Matthew 28:18-20
Organizations We Support
Cookson Hills provides home, school, and therapy for kids who are at-risk.
For many kids, Cookson Hills is their childhood home. For others it’s a temporary home for about two years. All kids come here to live within a family. They enroll in school, they play sports, they make friends, they set the table, they laugh, they ride horses, they heal, and (we hope) they leave better than they came.
Fellowship of Christian Students at OSU
FOCUS, Fellowship of Christian University Students, is a campus ministry that has been serving students at Oklahoma State University for over 35 years. The Table is our campus house where students can gather in community, study and worship. Our ministry also provides several ways in which students can get connected with the local Church.
Evangelism, Empowerment, Education
We believe in a holistic approach to ministry. Our aim is to see people transformed by the grace of Jesus Christ through our evangelistic efforts, but we also believe we must enrich people’s lives and society through education and empowerment. This strategy allows for holistic transformation of a person’s heart, mind, and soul.

Our Primary Strategy
Prayer is our strategy.
The H family has been working in the Middle east for over three years. They are working with an unreached semi-nomadic minority language group in a primarily Arabic speaking Muslim country. These people presently have no Scripture translated into their language. In our context, there is no church among them; not one follower of Jesus. The H’s vision is to help catalyze a church planting movement among them.
Families We Support
First Church has a heart for supporting families who take the step of faith to travel abroad on a semi-permanent basis, to take the gospel of Jesus Christ outside their homes, their states, and even their continents. It goes hand in hand with our Core Values to be a Kingdom-Minded church, and to Raise Up Godly Leaders. These families have heard the call to honor the Great Commission in this way and it is essential for living out the mission Christ imparted on us to support such efforts.
