Welcome - We're so glad you're here!

WELCOME TO

FIRST CHURCH


The First Church of Seventh-day Adventists is a community of believers who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In continuity with the people of God in Old Testament times, we are called out from the world; and we join together for worship, for fellowship, for instruction in the Word, for the celebration of the Lord's Supper, for service to all mankind, and for the worldwide proclamation of the gospel.

Come - Worship with us!

WORSHIP

OPPORTUNITIES


The church is one body with many members, called from every nation, kindred, tongue, and people. In Christ we are a new creation; distinctions of race, culture, learning, and nationality, and differences between high and low, rich and poor, male and female, must not be divisive among us.


LEARN MORE
Serve - Reach in, out, up, and down.

SPIRITUAL FRUIT OF THE MONTH

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1Corinthians 13: 4-7 Is the fruit of love growing in you and are the seeds of love being spread through you?
