What’s in a name? Well, let’s take a look at it:
CHRIST… Our Lord and Savior! Christ First Church is about Christ. We worship Him. We exist to honor Him. Our lives are to be lived for Him and His glory and that alone.
Philippians 3:3 “For we are the circumcision, who worship by the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh”
Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I ow live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
Philippians 1:21 “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
FIRST… It is our desire at Christ First Church to put Christ first in everything we do. He is considered first in our planning before anyone or anything else. Furthermore, He is first in our hearts. First is His rightful place.
Philippians 1:20 “as it is my eager expectation and my hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death.
CHURCH…We are a church! A family of believers who meet to worship. We are not a club or organization or even a fellowship. We are a Church called of God to encourage the saints, exhort one another and to evangelize a world with the message of Christ.
Acts 2:47 “And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.”
Ephesians 5:27 “so that he might present the church to him-self in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish.”
Colossians 1:18 “And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the first born from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent.”
