Our Purposes

The purpose of First Assembly is to glorify God by helping people to come to know and worship Jesus, to build caring relationships, to serve others, and to grow spiritually. We endeavor to do so by making five foundational biblical purposes our priority:      

 

worship

Honoring and celebrating Christ in our lives through godly living as individuals and through regular worship and study of God's Word together as a church family. (Psalm 95:6-7; Matthew 22:37-38; John 4:24; Acts 2:46-47; Ephesians 5:19-20; Hebrews 10:25)

relationships  

Encouraging, supporting, praying, caring for, and in other ways encouraging one another in personal family life and in the family of God. (Matthew 22:29; John 13:34-35; Acts 2:42,46; Romans 15:5-7; Hebrews 10:24-25) 

growth

Ministering unselfishly to others, both outside and inside the church family through discovering and using our God given gifts and abilities to meet their spiritual, physical, and emotional needs. (Matthew 25:34-40; Galatians 5:13; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; 1 Peter 4:10-11) 

service

Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with as many people as possible in our community and throughout the world, with a heart of compassion to meet their needs. By serving our neighbor we are serving God(Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:47; 2 Peter 3:9)
