It is the great privilege of the Church to testify to the grace of God in Jesus Christ as we seek to promote the Gospel to all nations in word and deed. The spread of the Gospel is the unique and central calling of the Church, therefore First United seeks to preach, teach and allocate resources to this end. The Missions Team oversees our partnerships with missionaries around the globe as well as seeks to offer intentional ways for the congregation to be informed of missions efforts around the world. Some of missions initiatives currently going on at First United include:
You can view our Mission Policy which includes our Core Convictions about missions here.
Romans 10:14-15 states, “How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” We aim to be a church who deliberately seeks to spread the Good News among all peoples of the earth and consequently, “Beautiful Feet” has been one of the five Core Values at First United. It is our continual prayer that the Lord will raise up missionaries from First United to participate in the global enterprise of the making disciples of all nations
