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
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.
