The heartbeat of our church is to see lives changed by the power of God's Spirit. We believe that every person has a God-given purpose inside of them.

When God's Spirit moves on us, we move closer to God's plan for our lives.


THE First Church DNA consists

of four core values.



 we must love God with all we are.


We strive to continually grow in faith.


We commit to display God's love through serving others.


Standing still is not an option; we must go and make a difference.
