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 strive to continually grow in faith.


 we must love God with all we are.



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


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