Here at First Church, our mission is both simple and far-reaching, and it defines us as a family of faith:
We are a community
of Jesus followers
who love God, love one another,
and make disciples.
God’s Preferred Future for Us:
Foster a grassroots movement of Kingdom communities who love God and love others in profound ways and live to extend His Kingdom.
Images that help us to live out God’s vision for us:
OUR ORIGIN — We began as a Kingdom community who worshiped God at Wethersfield Cove, ready to plant a church in order to extend His Kingdom in Connecticut and beyond. Our calling is still the same.
OUR LIFE — A community of disciples seeking by God’s love to be transformed by the Holy Spirit into the image of Jesus Christ, living together a way of life that makes and sends disciples out into the harvest for His glory.
OUR ENVIRONMENT — A community that serves as a haven of hope by providing through God’s love not only healing for people who struggle with life or are wounded by the past but, ultimately, by leading them in many ways into a relationship with the Great Lover of our souls, Jesus Christ.
OUR TASK — A mobile community of servants who share His love outside the church walls wherever they go in life.
