The vision of First Church is to lead souls to Christ through the new birth experience, build a church with facilities to minister to the whole family, and for First Church to become a launching pad for world missions to spread the gospel for the glory of God. Our mission is to develop a workable process to turn seekers into saints, turn consumers into contributors, turn members into ministers, and turn an audience into an army. This is all for the purpose of evangelizing and equipping people with the gospel of Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth, ultimately presenting unto God a bride without spot or wrinkle, being full of the Holy Ghost.

Richard Brown, Assistant Pastor
Richard Brown is the assistant pastor of First Church. He teaches in a home fellowship group and has served as a youth leader, Sunday School teacher, and board member throughout his time in ministry.
The Lord found him wandering aimlessly through life at the age of 19 and, since then, Bro. Brown has kept his hands on the plough — never to look back. When he’s not preaching or teaching, he can be found running, biking, or rising up to the challenge of an adventure.
